Beating a Dead Horse
This is pure corn-fed discontent. Former Iowa resident Arecee releases his second record, 'Beating a Dead Horse', under NYC's Collekt Records in Brooklyn, New York. His dark melodic beats and thick delivery are a refreshing alternative to today's bubblegum thug rap and purist hip-hop. On the track titled 'Breathe Deep' we hear a glimpse of a tragic past romance gone sour while the up-beat 'Round and Round' features hip-hop heavyweight Supastition. In 'Life is Cartoons,' Arecee proclaims that 'hip-hop is stupid'; after watching MTV, I couldn't agree more. Lush self produced beats and deeply personal lyrics make this release a breath of fresh air in today's copycat music industry. Arecee's first release, 'Direction for Children' featuring Sage francis, is currently in stores.
