“Jonah” brings the good vibes with his recent release “Trust the Process.” The track puts forth the hip-hop and rap-like style of hip-hop that is instantly calming, and the artist’s voice on top of this fits perfectly.
The song is chilled out; the ambiance is peaceful, the beat is light and easygoing, plus, the lyrical substance is undeniably deep and valuable – what you get from all of this is a real moment of truth, reflection, thoughtfulness and honesty. The music settles you down, and as the artist quite literally states in the final line – all in all, it really is something you can nod your head to. The added benefit, however, is that there is much more to the track than just the music.
It’s a pleasure to hear something with meaning, delivered in a confident and effortless sounding manner, mixed in among a musical soundscape that really allows and encourages you to relax, to listen intently, and to think a little deeper for yourself; about the issues presented, and about your own role in the world.
The music unfolds progressively – it takes its time to strike, slowly captivating you with a greatly confident sort of calmness. It sets a mellow vibe at first that really captures your attention and draws you in. As things build up, it’s not a wall of various instruments layered on top of one another to present intensity, as is sometimes the case, instead, it’s a unique and delicate touch of artistic expression – partly in the form of very specific synth and effect choices.
The hit of the music is enhanced by the leading vocal, which is awesomely performed; relevantly mellow, yet subtly and crucially emotional. It’s also a vocal that has been flawlessly and effectively incorporated into the mix, really helping the entire project just wash over its audience with great style. The greatness of “Trust the Process” comes from the well-thought-out balance between substance and sound. The humble nature of the music draws your attention willingly towards the words, and the artist’s voice has such a soothing presentation to it that there’s just no real reason to turn away once you’re involved. Stay tuned with Jonah to witness many more awesome tracks in near future.
