I am not going to talk about flowers in this writeup. The name of the tape is more of a feeling. This is morning at the beach music. You can start your day with any of the first 13 tracks — preferably in the arranged order. After track 13, the mix veers into darker territory. It is like when the high wears off, and you realize that the summer is coming to an end.
And the flower is dead. Sorry, just needed one flower reference for it all to make sense. And the beginning is like the flower of love, blooming. Ugh, gosh, sorry… two.
I know enough about being high to know you my ultimate drug
“Blending” is the solo debut from ZAN, who is currently a resident of New York but has a Jamaican heritage. The Jon B-sampling single is an audio interpolation of a beach vacation with your lover. Listening to it, you can just imagine one of those cliché 90′s R&B videos with the guy singing to his girlfriend while she participates in mundane activities. That being said, there is nothing cliché about Zan’s sound. He is “blending” R&B, trap, and reggae in a much less forced way than some of his counterparts.
My rule of thumb is three good songs before I am sold on an artist. We have one and a half below. Stay tuned for more ZAN (hopefully) on the way soon.
Girl so down to earth that she reminds me of daisies
