This West Midlands rapper was someone I not familiar with, but after checking out his debut album‘Stepping In The Box’ I was so intrigued to find out what the future holds for this intelligent and positive recording artist and performer so I interviewed him. What I like about Krystatic is that he has his own style and cleverly mixes up loads of the different styles in urban music and rap in a way that is totally unique to him. He seems sincere, humble and real… something that not only Rago Magazine love, but something most Hip-Hop fans love too. It’s all about the realness and being real to yourself and that’s Krystatic in a nut shell!
For the bubbling synthesizers to the 808 drums and snares on the opening track ‘Rhyme and Blues’ I knew this could be something special. Produced by SX this track has a deadly sub-bass rhythm which sets the stage for Krystatic’s debut so well. There’s plenty more to talk about too with the impressive Hip-Hop banger ‘The Taste’ produced by Dezert Rhino really hitting the spot. It reminds me of how Hip-Hop should be… positive lyrics and a real catchy hook. Other highlights on the album include ‘Time Is Money’ which is again produced by Dezert Rhino and the mainstream sounding ‘Stay Loyal’ where Rico Levant not only gives up a superb hook but also gives up a dope beat.
Krystatic definitely has his own vibe and has definitely benefited from having some quality production. This is an impressive debut album, it’s adventurous and real. To think this emcee is only nineteen is kind of crazy as he seems to have such a mature approach to not just his career but also his music. We like this artist, he makes good songs and above all he has made a good solid debut album. Make sure you check out Krystatic at the My Space address below!
