D’Watchlist

#Dwatchlist presents @Stiques_the_god (STIQUES) – Lamba

Today on Dwatchlist, Afro Neo-Soul artist Stiques is up for review.

In a short period of time that we have come to know him, he has impressed us with his unique sense of sound, beats, and viewpoint on positive energy.  In his latest single ‘Lamba,’ Stiques reached into our souls and deposited positive rhythmic energy…I guess that was his intention.  Lamba, self-produced by Stiques, is our latest song on D’watchlist.

Let yourself be tempted and take a bite off his previous single Barnawa Gockshire,  released in 2016. In it, Stiques rapped predominantly in Hausa, expressing positive political views that bounced beyond auditory limits. He discussed a desire for the Government to do good by the people.

Listen, enjoy and please share with a fellow good music lover.

Genio Bambino drops the (EP) Virtuoso

This may come as a late post, but that is also because we couldn’t fully understand the meaning & purpose of the project Virtuoso.

So we asked a few internal questions; Does the project sound good? Hell yeah!

Does it sound fresh? Hell yeah!

So, we reached out to Genio and asked him a few questions;

What is the purpose of this album?

“The purpose of the album is basically to show how skilled and diverse I am, because on this project I sang, rapped, wrote, produced, mixed and mastered the whole project.”

Why did you put it out now?

“I decided to put it out now because I felt it was the right time to come out as Genio Bambino because a lot of people don’t know I have changed my name and have not noticed the growth and changes I have been through.”

What inspired the collaborations?

“Neo Africa inspired the features. All the people I featured are my friends and I wanted to show how dope they are and I also wanted to showcase Nigerian underground at the moment.”

Who is Genio Bambino?

“Genio Bambino is the youngest monster boy. He raps, sings, writes and produces. I was kinda feeling myself when I gave myself the name because it means “Boy Genius” in Italian and that’s how I feel.”

After all these questions were answered, we asked ourselves (internally) the last question;

Will we recommend it to others?

We certainly will! And we also hope you get to listen to it and perhaps share it with your friends.

Don’t forget to drop a comment and let us know what you think.

Ice Cream: Lady Donli Featuring Tomi Thomas

Lady Donli, a name that has been on D’Watchlist ever since she put out her Wall Flower Ep, has just put out a new record called Ice Cream featuring Tomi Thomas, who just shared a stage with Cobhams Asoquo at the 4th edition of the PGM Live.  And by God, he was amazing!

In this new single, Lady Donli uses ice cream as a metaphor to describe a love that is addictive yet not healthy.  A love that is so sweet, it comes in various flavors making it even harder to resist.

Certainly, we have all found ourselves in such a situation at one point in life.  But just like the saying goes, Life is like an Ice Cream, enjoy it before it melts,’ sometimes we need to just indulge ourselves and enjoy it while it lasts. Even if it’s just for a moment.

The song also buttresses her versatility as she fuses in a stint of disco which seems to be the new rave right now (i.e Drake – Passion Fruit & Odunsi / Nonso Amadi – Don’t).

We at thePGMClub recommend this song to all good music lovers. (PGM)

A Review of Remy Baggins’ Eigengrau

Ever since the release of his debut mixtape VIV, talented producer, singer and songwriter Remy Baggins has featured heavily on our radar.

In this time, he has built up an impressive collection of diverse features and production credits that have imprinted his distinct sound on us. Simply put as both a producer and artist, he excels in experimenting with multiple genres and blending melodies to create an impressive signature sound.

So, when we heard that he was releasing a new EP, titled Eigengrau, we were so excited we asked for an advance copy and now we are pleased to present to you our review.

Eigengrau is a deeply personal project, one that Remy says he recorded at a time when he was depressed and confused about his next career and life choices with the latter serving as the theme to the project’s opening track “Tell Me”. Sounding like the soundtrack of a deep movie monologue, Remy expresses his frustrations about his growth in the music industry and also as a person. The track is the darkest reflection of the project’s theme and it serves as a not so subtle precursor for what comes next in “Why?”

“Why?” is one of the EP’s standout track. It sees Remy experimenting with a smooth blend of Afro-Pop and South African House with an intriguing storyline about a stalking ex. This is what good music sounds like with relatable lyrics and a wonderful melodious vibe on the instrumentals.

Next up is “Paranoid” which is kinda like a complement or inverse of “Why?” with Remy the one stalking a lover or ex. The track is slower and more laid back but the delivery is subtle and superb. In keeping with the project’s theme the song is somewhat reflective and sounds inspired by true events. Another stand out track.

On “Maybe…” co-written by the super talented Efe Oraka, Remy is back full and centered on his struggles but with a more upbeat, up tempo vibe. It’s at this moment that Remy begins to look past his pain and the track is yet another vibe on a project packed full of gems.

But perhaps more than any other, “STAYWOKE” is a reflection of Remy’s experimental style with him rapping over a heavy trap infused beat. Fully emerged from the darkness in “Tell Me”, Remy’s fighting back with fury but at the same he has created an anthem for the up and coming underdog.
In our opinion, this is the project’s stand out track.

Closing out with a very “trippy ass outro”, what is clear at the end of this project is that Remy definitely isn’t afraid to experiment with his production and song writing. He’s also progressed from VIV and his sound and songs are a lot more concise. The progress he’s making as a creator is evident and Eigengrau is already one of our favorite projects in what has been a stellar year for alternative Nigerian music.

We at the PGM club, highly recommend that you take the time out to listen to this project and we eagerly await Remy’s future projects.
