Hidden Gems :: DEFY’d Gives You ‘Nothing For Your Birthday’

a2488104616_10

There’s problems, and then there’s good problems.  A problem is when you have every intention of creating music, but you lack the motivation or the opportunities to do so.  A good problem is when your motivation and opportunities are so abundant, that sometimes your musical output goes overlooked by even those who stay checking for it.  The latter would be the case in regards to the homeboy SymmaTree.  Dude stays busy both representing for Grid Squid Entertainment and StereoFiend, so when I came across a post about a project he was in called DEFY’d, I was surprised that I completely missed the boat on it.  nothing for your birthday is the solid first effort from a band, an amalgamation of members from Call Me King and Dancing with Gepetto, as well as the previously mentioned SymmaTree and additional vocalist M.E. Farrell.  It would be easy to classify this project as rock/rap [see the very self-aware (my ears matter) interlude], but that would be doing this collaboration a disservice, as there is something definitely brewing here.  I’ve heard the song Fingertips previously, but it does a nice job of rounding out this debut offering.  I am looking forward to hearing more from DEFY’d, believe that.

Cold World :: SymmaTree Drops His ‘Frozen Leaves’ EP

a0004782264_10

The homie SymmaTree from Grid Squid has been on a mission to make 2017 one for the books.  He and his crew have already begun the first of many road excursions in the name of spreading the word about Grid Squid, and now the Frozen Leaves EP is hitting our sound systems.  This 5 song offering is full of solid, jazzy production, and the lyrics are on point, which we’ve come to expect from SymmaTree.  Definitely cop this one, and throw him a few bones so that he doesn’t starve out there on the road.

Summer Breeze :: MALONE Drops ‘Lightspeed’ Visuals

A good find from the homie SymmaTree.  Corpus Christi based producer MALONE (who I admittedly know nothing about) has dropped a nice track by the name of lightspeed.  Fellow Corpus Christi-based visual creator Luis Esotric laced the track with visuals.  All that’s left for us to do is sit back and enjoy.

Better Late Than Never :: The Commonwealth’s ‘Tribute To Illmind’

from the digital desk of Grid Squid Ent. :

‘When CA the Commoner first joined Grid Squid, SymmaTree had the master plan to release a badass mixtape with the two of them rapping over production by renown producer Illmind.

That plan failed….

Since then both artists have gone on to release other solo projects, but Grid Squid is happy to release the completed songs from that project for your listening pleasure.

CA the Commoner & SymmaTree are The Commonwealth.’

When They Reminisce :: SymmaTree’s “Tribute To Kev Brown”

Newness from my main man SymmaTree.  This one features a nice cross section of central Texas talent.  Very low key and introspective… worth your listens, downloads and shares.
