ialive & Height Keech - These Days

The first single released off the ialive and Height Keech collaborating effort, Timewave Zero on Cold Rhymes Records, is the track These Days. Height is producing this project while ialive handles the vocals which include both rapping and singing. Although relatively new to production Height Keech has already found a style of production that’s all his and can carry a very catchy groove thanks to his unconventional style of digging in different genres and different formats. This beat in particle makes me feel like it’s winter and I’m sitting in a cabin in front of a fire sipping hot chocolate. The track These Days ialive talks about “replaying my favorite memories over metronomes,” as is stated in his hook. The hook that occurs every eight bars is ialive flexing his singing voice, something he’s been doing more and more often lately. The short eight bar verses are enough for ialive to delivery at least one memory in a very relaxing tone over Heght’s track that I can only best describe as, cold blue, which is fitting because ialive talks a lot about gloomy/cold weather (but not in a negative way). I’m expecting to hear more stuff like These Days on this release. Opposed to ialive’s more boom-bap influenced tracks I think Cold Rhymes Records will give him the freedom to stray from his purist roots & try something left field of rap while a more centered towards pop structure.
