The most recent tracks from Gerry Ogbonna work together as an excellent example of his broad stylistic range. Throughout the course of the past few months he has collaborated with a trio of artists to create a cool mix of Rap and R&B jams. The playlist below highlights his versatility while clearly defining his signature sound. Chill Hip-hop beats meet atmospheric backing tracks to create a lush and often cinematic vibe.
“Bezerk” rides on a hard Trap beat and features an excellent performance from South Carolina rapper ChrisJenkins . Dark, minor-key chords float on the edges of the mix while cool 8-bit Glitch synths add some wild percussive and melodic flavor. On “Affection,” Gerry’s collaboration with singer Sam Heavens, he takes a turn into smooth R&B/Electro-Pop. Ambient synths float on the periphery as Sam delivers a soulful vocal on this chilled-out love song. The track rolls on a smooth Hip-hop shuffle beat while mellow analog synths add a psychedelic flare.
On the final three tracks Gerry Ogbonna works with the multi-talented singer and rapper XoDrew. “Break Us” and “Cold Hearted” are two downtempo Trap slow jams that look at the opposite ends of a love affair. Ethereal guitars and synths create a mellow mood on the laid-back “Break Us” as XoDrew sings of his devotion to his lady. On “Cold Hearted,” things have gone bad. He looks back at a broken love and let’s his girl know, “I’m cold hearted, cuz of you.” “Turn Into Mine” closes out the collection. The song opens on a dramatic piano ballad. However, soon the beat drops and the track turns into a low and slow Trap groove featuring Ogbonna’s signature ambient vibes as the singer flows easily between R&B soul and melodic rap.
