Rhymes: Lyle Horowitz - Smiles of a Summer Night (Free download/stream)
Once in a while, I will randomly check out a post on Okayplayer about a member's music. Usually I'll give a track or two a quick listen, just because when I post stuff there I'd like it people listened to my stuff.
But with beatsmith, Lyle Horowitz's latest release, Smiles of a Summer Night I was hooked instantly with the phenomenal intro sung by vocalist, Dana Washington. The entire project has a great, laid back summer vibe. The production is solid throughout, with the exception being the Charles Hamilton produced, "Have Fun." The rapping is also surprisingly on point as well. PreZZure steals the show on all three of the tracks he is on including my personal favorite, "Bar Life."
I highly recommend that you check out this free project. Due to the high number of people checking out this project, he has exceeded the Bandcamp free download limit (of 500 downloads), but he was kind enough to give an alternative download link.
