Sonically Appealing member Scotts Free drops a solid debut in Reality
Sonically Appealing is a super group out of Connecticut consisting of MC’s, producers, and engineers that are consistently collaborating, and working on their craft. They pride themselves on their fusion of golden age hip hop, clever wordplay, and diverse instrumentals.
A key member of the group, producer Scotts Free, has been fine tuning his skills in engineering, drum patterns, and sampling in preparation for his debut LP, Reality. There are wavy lo fi cuts, chopped up samples, serene soundscapes, vocal performances, and even some rapping.
Reality is Scotts Free's interpretation of the mental tolls that it takes to become successful in the music industry, while also predicting his own reactions to such scenarios. This may sound overly ambitious, but read the song titles, and fully immerse yourself in the sounds. Reality is a very solid debut, and it’s clear Scott put a lot of time and effort into the project.
