Slated Release Date:Mid-October (Domination/Doxside)
Chances are, you probably are sleeping on TzariZM. Or hell, even the rest of the Doxside camp for that matter (Vis Major, IMAKEMADBEATS, Midaz The Beast, Butta Verses, Synopse, etc), yet dudes’ consistently drop heat. I mean, have you really listened to one of the year’s finest releases thus far, “Mbodiment”? Not only was the album laced with some of the finest production of the year, courtesy of TzariZM, but Vis Major rose to the occasion with one of 2010′s finer lyrical performances. So, with that being said, I’ll stop rambling on and you can just read THIS if you need further proof. Needless to say, the Doxside onslaught isn’t about to cease anytime soon. I just received advances for IMAKEMADBEATS’ “Daylight” (his collaborative effort with Butta Verses) and “Nightlight” (w/Midaz The Beast) EPs late last evening and after spending the morning workout with ‘em both on the Ipod, you’ve been warned. Talent much be in the water for the Doxside family, literally (in case you didn’t know, TZ and IMAKEMADBEATS are brothers).
Next up to bat though, is TzariZM, who’s also quite nice lyrically, with his instrumental opus “The Heart Beatz Vol. I”, which is scheduled to hit the streets in mid-October via Domination. Showcasing his true range as a producer, TzariZM has laced “The Heart Beatz Vol. I” with the elegant (see: “Just Feelz Right” and “PhanTIZM SCeNery”, “Emotion I Put Into iT” and “JouRNey 2 HaPPiNeSS”), while also sticking to the good ol’ boom-bap (see: “Sewer Gutta Fellaship”, “Like I Do-Don’t Try It”, “HoneY Bee” and “The Way I See”). As ill with it as TZ was on “Mbodiment”, he’s truly stepped up his game on “The Heart Beatz”. Even though Tzar is a seasoned producer, you can still hear the growth and maturation in his production process within each of the album’s tracks.
After a few listens to the LP, I’d be hard pressed to omit “The Heart Beatz Vol. I” from the likes of my top instrumental LPs of the year. What was most surprising regarding the LP is the variance in sound from the aforementioned “Mbodiment”. I was expecting more flavor from TzariZM in the form of “Live Sh!t” and “Fetus Musik”, yet I was pleasantly surprised with the more musically-inclined vibe of “Heart Beatz”. One listen to this album and you’re gonna’ wish your lyrical game was more up to par so you, yourself could lace some of these heatrocks. You know how you have an album that is more of an expedition or journey than just a record or compilation of individual jawns? Well, strap yourself in, TzariZM has done it with this album. Don’t sleep come October! In the interim, peep the audio for two of my favorite cuts from the album above. DOXSIDE kid!!
