I’m just discovering the music of Jason Flame tonight. I’m thankful I found it when I did, because the young man’s got an ear for beats and substance. That’s something you don’t really find as much with some artists these days. Either the beats are fire and the subjects are eh, or the subjects are fire and the beats are mid. Flame lives up to his name on these two tracks, “Guardian Angel” and “Space.”
“Guardian Angel” is about the dualities of life, specifically the duality of “trying to accomplish a lot with a little.” I’ve been there, especially during my early years. Remember, I’m an artist who produced, mixed, recorded, auto-tuned and pretty much everything else–even more than I do now–to different results on each song. So I get the hardships that come with starting out trying to make a name for yourself when you have nothing but the proverbial pot to piss in.
“Space,” featuring Justice Noel, is a bit more on the softer side. It features the duo trying to hash out the details of their relationship and their being together. At least that’s how I take the song. It could also be another track about the grind of an indie artist just as easily. That said, I like the production on this one because it reminds me a bit of Lloyd’s “Southside.”
Overall, the two-track EP is a solid addition to the SOTBMusic catalogue and I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did. Check them out below and remember to support dope music in all its forms.
