“It’s Just A Vibe”: The Unapologetic Unveiling of SXNTYLR’s EP

SXNTYLR and his latest EP, It’s Just A Vibe, serves as more than just a captivating collection of trendy tracks; it’s a bold testament to one of today’s most promising performers. While some musicians may alter their artistry with music that fits in with the crowd, SXNTYLR, with a revolutionary twist, approaches an auditory journey that is entirely his own. The EP’s namesake promise of a vibe is not an exaggeration; it’s an intense, full-body experience expressed through freedom and creativity.

The Classentic Sound

What is “classentic”? It’s a word coined by SXNTYLR, indicative of his intent to create what he terms the classentic sound – a fusion of classic and authentic music styles. Each track on the EP pulses with this purpose, a cocktail of hip-hop, R&B, dancehall, afrobeat, jazz, and more. There’s no pigeonholing his artistry into the neatly labeled boxes of the music industry. It’s a move shunning conformity that, in turn, unveils an eclectic soundscape.

Standout singles like “PULL UP” and “JOE GRINE” not only tease the tunes’ irrefutable danceability but also serve as sonic celebrations of collective nostalgia. The popular project positions itself as a blend of melodic trap beats, Hip-Hop heavy hits, soul-stirring trumpet solos, and more becomes an instant anthem. The opening offer of “EARLY WARM” does just that. Gives fans a sneak peak of what’s to be expected with a little warm up. Next, tapping HG Locks to “PULL UP”, it provides a reimagining of 50 Cent’s “Candy Shop,” repurposes the rap landscape with a voice that’s both modern and reverently rooted in the past with his signature sound stamped. After painting the picture, SXNTYLR maintains momentum with back to back bangers by bringing the vibes, but with vibrant vibes unique to him.

A Tracklist That Transcends Time

From the introductory beats of “EARLY WARM,” reminiscent of an old-school hip-hop jam, to the contemplative breeze of the “COOL DOWN,” SXNTYLR takes listeners through a chronological narrative of musical evolution. It’s Just A Vibe isn’t just about enjoying the present; it’s a bridge between the sonic legacies of the past and the boundless potential of the future.

An Homage to Greatness

‘Great artists steal,’ the cliche goes, but SXNTYLR does more than just borrow; he pays tribute to the iconic musicians of our time and their timeless tracks. On the surface, the EP is a tribute to music visionaries, reimagining classic hits as contemporary anthems. However, at its foundation, It’s Just A Vibe celebrates the ongoing flowering of art’s timeless blooms. It’s a strong statement that art is alive, unstoppable, and, most importantly, constant while history continues to repeat itself.

Throughout It’s Just A Vibe, SXNTYLR invites us not just to vibe, but to also witness the unfolding of something spectacular. His unapologetic yet promising position on music, which refuses to be limited to a single genre, is an appeal for action against artistic stagnation. The EP acts as a compass, guiding us not to comfortable, safe harbors, but to the turbulent waters where creativity thrives.
