Jamix album - The Lecture, now out in stores nationwide

ARTISTE: The Lecture (FT. Various Artists)

RECORD LABEL: Tronix Productions, Peach & Prime Entertainment

DISTRIBUTED BY: T Joe Distribution

PRODUCER: Jamix

After producing hit tracks for the likes of Styl Plus, Modenine, and OD, veteran producer Jamix finally decides to drop his album (which we’ve waited forever for!). The album comprises of various artistes; mostly dominated by Northern based emcees (though they have made a transition to the ‘Centre of Excellence’). Jamix plays safe by placing his trust with familiar faces on this album, the album roaster features artistes he has either previously worked with or has a strong musical bond with.

From the intro, you can tell that the beats are banging and very clubby. Track after track, emcees burn the mic up with lovely wordplay, punchlines and complex metaphors. But you seem to wonder, these beats do sound too much alike and at times you would think the next song is a continuation of the last. The cohesion between the featured artistes is brilliant except on “24/7” where Styl Plus go hard only to leave rapper Alaye trying to catch up.

The songs are very bumpy and the bass is heavy and consistent. Jamix excites his listeners with vocal shout-outs over the verses making it sound very original. On “I’m here with you”, Jeremiah Gyang is left alone to take smooth control with perfect croons and adlibs. Some tracks do sound unnecessary like “Ma belle” ft Dollar Sign, El dot, Gee Zee, & VT combs and “Betcha” ft B.O.U.Q.U.I which appeared on her album 3 years ago.

But Jamix bounces back with “Freestyle Session” ft Modenine, Ain Mosni, Pherowshuz, El Dot, Ruggedman, Gee Zee & OD which is the highest point on the album. Apart from the fact that you get to see ‘Modey’ & ‘Ruggedy’ on the same track despite their ‘wars’, “Freestyle Session” just brings back the good old days before vocal modulations and corny rap. Not forgetting “Omo Naija” ft Terry G, 9ice and M.I which still sounds relevant on the album after the single was released 3 years ago. Another track that stands out is “My Party” ft newcomers Ice Prince, Wizkid & the girl Kel.
