 Funktional Addict E.P. Review Chilled out to its very core, Tripp Demon’s “The Funktional Addict E.P.” exists in a delightful haze. With a wonderful dazed delivery, the songs are luxurious, decadent even with their flawless production. Best heard with headphones for maximum effect, the songs are surreal with their spacious sounds. Flows are phenomenal nicely meshing with the mellowed grooves that adorn the collection. Stylistically, Tripp Demon borrows liberally from funk, jazz, rock, and ambient while framing everything within a light hip-hop rhythm. Setting the tone for the collection is the snare heavy, bass drops of “O.K.C.”. Featuring K-Buck and Captain Atlanta the song explores a fine hybrid of styles, letting a blistering guitar solo close things off right. K-Buck’s tight delivery adorns the intense energy of “B4IGo2Sleep”. Much more minimal in tone is the nimble rhythms of “Eyes Wide” where the song’s infectious energy is quite inviting. Reminiscent of the best of chillwave is the collection highlight, the infinitely stylish “Coupe Life (Smoke & Ride Mix)”. Cinematic heavy synthesizer stabs add to the overall grace of the track. With a melody that lingers in the mind long after the song is over, the feeling is one of pure bliss. A blurred beauty comes into view on the dreamy “Bright Lights Fast Living” with K-Buck’s vocals creating a snapshot of a life lived most fully. Ending things on a high note is Layzie Bone & Courtney Grace’s imagery on “One Time”. Tripp Demon sculpts a fine series of songs with the elaborate otherworldly style of “The Funktional Addict E.P.”.”

 Artist InterviewFull interview below BtR: You just released some new material for the world to hear. Whats the overall message of this latest release?Tripp Denom: My latest release is Eyes Wide, it’s message is of one of just pure fun and having a good time.BtR: Where did you spend your days growing up? How much would you say that your up-bringing influenced your music?TD: I was born in Louisiana and I moved around all throughout the south, growing up I’ve lived in Alabama, North Carolina and Georgia.BtR: Would you say that you were 'born' with your musical gift or did you have to work at it?TD: I’m gonna say a little bit of both, there is a such thing as being tone deaf, that’s real. So, one you have to be born able to comprehend notes and you either feel the rhythm or you don’t. With that being said, you have to work. You have to work extremely hard to hone your craft and your skills and pretty much find yourself and your voice as an artist in whatever it is you do.BtR: You're incredibly passionate about the arts and the message in your music. Tell us a little bit about that.TD: Always. As an artist, the ability to express myself is what keeps me sane. Just that artistic outlet for any person, you know, to be able to do what ever it is that you do, whether that be paint, act, sing, compose, write, whatever it’s what keeps you, you.BtR: As a rapper, how do you stand out from others within your genre?TD: By not being a rapper. I’m an artist and I make music. I make musical compositions, I make songs so that doesn’t 100% entail that I’m gonna be rapping on that song if that’s not what that song is made to be. As far as standing out I’m just being me. Being me is what you get with my music, it’s just that, music. It’s gonna be a little bit of everything with a good vibe.BtR: Let's say you had the power to change the music industry and the way things work for all artists. The mainstream and underground. What would you do?TD: Oh shit. Wow. I would give commercial radio access to everybody. Every body. Independent artists would be able to literally get radio play right there alongside the main stream artists, I would level that out.I’d create like an artist industry d-league, with workshops and seminars to help people transition right into being a mainstream artist. You would learn how publishing works, how your money works, how you get paid from shows, how to read contracts and you know things of that nature.BtR: What song best depicts who you are as a person? Your struggles and triumphs.TD: I would say not with this project. This project is more uplifting it’s more of a feel good type of project and it’s a lot of negative surrounding everything right now so it’s more of a distraction. Like when you’ve just done had enough of watching CNN or whatever news is going on or whatever bad shit is fucked up today or what have you. This is when you need to feel good you want to chill, relax, kick back, burn one and have a good time and share that with your people. That’s what this record is for, sharing with your people, your good friends, share it with your loved one and you know party when it’s time to party and lay it down when it’s time to lay it down and get down when it’s time to get down. ”

Beyond The Record

 Coupe Life - Tripp Denom Review Tripp Denom’s “Coupe Life” glides by on chill vibes. With an all-encompassing lush sound the arrangement feels perfect. Percussion hits all the right notes, kept stripped down but still fully in force. Synthesizers sprawl out into luxurious textures letting the multi-layered kaleidoscopic rush of color. By far the heart and soul of the sound comes from the loose casual flow that rises above the rest of the sound. Everything simply works with the sound remaining in perfect harmony. Energy on the track adds to the overall feeling of contentment and well-being that dominates the track. Throughout the track Tripp Denom taps into this spirit again and again, letting the song fully embrace others, of exactly how true passion feels. Wasting no time Tripp Denom dives deep into the multi-faceted sound. Affectionate in nature the lyrics focus on true decadence. Beats have a neat angular sound to them as they frame the rest of the song. Melodies waft by as vast plumes of smoke, adding to the night-vibe that the song explores in detail. Over the course of the song things ebb and flow, stripping away the synthesizer sweeps only for them to return in ever greater force. Offering the perfect kind of laid-back atmosphere, the way that the song ends feel quite wonderful, almost evaporating into thin air. Neatly tying together hip-hop, rap, R&B, and hypnagogic pop into a satisfying rich whole, Tripp Denom’s “Coupe Life” is a pure joy. ”

 Bright Lights Fast Living ReviewWith a sly groove and a luxurious style, Tripp Denom feat. K-Buck’s “Bright Lights Fast Living” is an enthralling intoxicating piece of finely crafted pop. The flow is impeccable as his lyrical content is profound, nicely offering a snapshot of what it means to be alive in this exact moment. Opting for a seize the day mentality, the way that the song unfolds feels naturalistic in hue. Attention to detail is quite profound as the way the entire piece slowly comes together is rather gorgeous. Elements of rock, dubstep, dance, and electro are brought together into a wonderful almost psychedelic whole.The blurred vocals introduce the song as if waking from a dream. Guitars exist to give the song a light, gentle melody. Best of all though is the unstoppable power of the tight rhythm. When the bass finally hits it hits hard. Volume is the best way to truly appreciate the style as the entirety of the piece feels rather joyful in mood. A confidence emerges from the song as the lyrics explore what a certain day would be like, all the things that come together to make a day whole. Such a detached approach adds to the overall emphasis of the piece as the song’s introspection possesses a kind of defiance, the defiance which helps bring the song to a beautiful conclusion.“Bright Lights Fast Living” shows off the undeniable charms of Tripp Denom feat. K-Buck’s approach to sound: graceful, tasteful, and with a message that lingers in the mind long after the song has ended.” - Beach Sloth
