Eli Amari is back with a brand new studio release - Chapter On: The Unchosen One.

July 2021 - Some artists are always able to keep their music fresh and interesting, trying new ideas and setting the bar higher with so much passion for innovating themselves and their sound. This way, they can always rest assure to bring something more exciting and one-of-a-kind to their audience, which will support them time and time again. This is definitely what is happening with the talented Eli Amari, an artist and performer who has recently releases a brand new project, Chapter One: The Unchosen One.

This release is a perfect example of what it’s like to produce great hip-hop.

One of the most distinctive traits of this release is certainly the energy, and the drive that fuels the performance of the artist. The vocals feel very animated and spontaneous, an obvious sign that this performer is actually genuinely connecting with his lyrics, in a much deeper way. This isn’t just a puppet singer popping out catchy hooks: there is a deeper concept behind the songwriting, which really adds weight to the mix. Everyone seems to be stuck in the same old cliches, and as a result, this particular music scene is becoming a little bit stale. However, every once in a while something fantastic and full of heart comes up, just like Eli Amari’s new release. This amazing studio work actually features eight new tracks. With each song on this release, Eli took the opportunity to explore some new ideas and really set the bar higher in terms of creating an album that’s far from the usual cliches, choosing to dive deeper into some great lyrics and a unique production vibe instead. The artist is all about keeping a broad creative mindset, as well as exploring different creative avenues, without ever losing sight of their roots. The first song on this release, “Waited The Longest,” is an essential component of this album, which gets even more personal with the next track, “Know That I’m On,” sealing the deal with a strong focus on rhythm and texture.

One of the smoothest song on this release is definitely “Trip No More,” which is also a collaboration with Kam Diamond. The song is the only track to feature a collaborator, and it definitely brings a breath of fresh air to the mix! The song “Dead Or Alive” seems to be the perfect bridge between the other tracks, tying the vision together to perfection.

The following tune, “Don’t Change,” has a really groove trap-soul flow, which highlights Eli’s ability to combine melody and energy in equal doses. “Care For You” follows soon after, and its amazing neo-R&B intro really reminds me of innovative artists such as Frank Ocean. “Broken Hearted” follows along the same time, but it pushes the boundaries with a sound that’s even more personal and experimental!

Last but not least, “Pull Up On You” is just the last sprinkle on top, which serves as a perfect conclusion to this fantastic release.

In addition to the personable and edgy performance value, this release is also quite distinctive because of the sheer quality of the production. The mix is balanced and very detail-oriented, making for a lively, edgy and stark sonic approach. In other words, there are many subtle nuances in this release, which really add to the richness of the release when summed up together. The frequency spectrum of the mix is also very balanced, with a tight, yet deep low end working wonders along with a smooth top end, which adds a sense of clarity to the music.

Chapter One: The Unchosen One stands out for its modern sound, but although the production is quite polished, it is never overproduced, allowing a lot of wonderfully organic and “human” elements to really add liveliness to the mix.

Ultimately, I’d definitely recommend giving this one a shot, particularly if you are a fan of artists such as Drake, Lil Wayne and Kanye West. This is the kind of release that will surprise you for it sonic variety, and it will keep you on the edge of your seat due to its catchy, yet unpredictable arrangement. I always love to hear from artists who set the bar higher and push the envelope when it comes to their productions: this certainly appears to be the case!
