Please Wait’s “Flight 99” (feat. Ta-ku & matt mcwaters) gets a Your Cousin Avi Remix

Please Wait, matt mcwaters and Ta-ku‘s “Flight 99” gets a new life from Your Cousin Avi who flips the original into a smooth eclectic R&B/soul piece. Made up of rich guitar riffs, sublime horns, nostalgic textures and punchy drum grooves that exude the live feel of a musical band. Your Cousin Avi Remix of “Flight 99” is one of the three remixes on the new EP. While the original, timeless instrumental remains on this EP as the focus track, the remixes, sourced from within 823’s Hopes and Dreams Club – a digital community of musicians and photographers – stand on their own. “Flight 99 (Remixes)” arrives on Oct 21st, via The Hopes & Dreams Club, courtesy of Jakarta Records & 823.

The visualizer is put together by Hopes & Dreams Club collaborator Danien (IG @danienberends).

 

Growing up, Avi developed his talent as a musician through singing in Synagogue, playing bass in a blues band, and learning several other musical crafts in his free time. In high school, he discovered a strong passion for dance, and through his time spent performing musicals, there was no denying that he was indeed a triple threat. During his time in college, Avi took a short hiatus from music to continue pursuing his passion for dance, but after just a couple of years, found that dance was bringing him full circle back to music. Now with his focus set, his skills fine-tuned, and his determination to continue growing at all costs, Avi is starting to turn heads and make a unique impact on the music world.

Darby O’Trill & Devereaux Prelude “The Tomb” in the Form of ”Amputate” (EP Review)

This is the 5th EP from Floridian emcee Darby O’Trill. Coming up in the fall of 2018 off his full-length debut Blood, Guts & a Whole Lotta Love, he would go on to follow it with Fester almost a year later & has extensively been working with Chapter 17/Psychopathic Records in-house producer Devereaux by bringing him into the cut to fully produce his 3rd album Piecemeal to critical acclaim during the COVID-19 pandemic. His last full-length Gully came out this past spring under Lyrikal Snuff Productionz & instantly became a modern day wicked shit classic so when it was announced that Darby & Dev were giving us Amputate as a prelude to The Tomb on Halloween, the anticipation was most certainly there.

“Carcass in the Car Wash” kicks off the whole EP with a synth-laced trap beat taking aim at all the knock-offs while the penultimate track “Take a Shower & Clean Your Clothes, You Smell Like Complete Garbage” has a more haunting atmosphere to it talking about drinking bleach. “I Hate Rappers Who Only Rap About Rapping” though sends Amputate off with an operatic loop, some hi-hats & Darby describing the sick world that we all be living in.

You know for a 3 track/5 minute EP, I think it’ll hold off just fine until we enter The Tomb a little over a month from now. Devereaux’s production continues to elevate, Darby lyrically continues to push himself as one of the best newcomers in the underground right now & the Jugg-A-Holics tags throughout are a fresh homage to DJ Trap-A-Holics.

Score: 7/10
