I stumbled across the soundcloud of Technicolor Lenses the other day, and was amazed at their unique style of music. Somehow they manage to create a fusion between Hip Hop, live instrumentation and psychadelic electronic roots.
This music is atmospheric, while keeping a classic hip hop beat with storytelling rap and clear electro influences. They incorporate many naturalistic and obscure sounds to their music, to create dreamy echoes and inspire a sense of mystery to each song. The group, consists of Sam Eckstein (co-producer/dj/guitar), Carmen Estevez (co-producer/vocalist/percussion), Jackson Whalan (rapper/co-producer), and Brandon Lewis (drummer/co-producer), who manage to fuse together their own personal styles to create this marvelously cohesive and fresh sound.
If you listen closely, each rap tells a deep and distinct story or message about human psyche and global issues. According to their description, the group is “a catalyst for creating positive experiences in live performance, evolving a new musical genre-bending alchemy, and rapping with intelligent lyrical delivery.” Take a listen to this entrancing music for yourself below!
