NEW YORK, USA
Every song has an instrumental introduction that slaps and verses that slap even harder. His tone eases in with its infectious flow. Alpha$man has a digestible delivery simmering with clean-cut enunciation, making the listening experience seamless to follow along with The Moonlight Groove narrative.
“Each one of my collections stems from an idea, thought process, or theme that encompasses where I am emotionally, spiritually, and mentally in time. As a 'wolf', we love the moon, as it’s our guide in the dark, and sometimes in life we find ourselves in the dark. So with this project, I let the moon be the beacon, not just for myself but for my fellow wolves out there as we continue our journey through this life."- ALPHA$MAN
Track One: En Route
A million-dollar heist, strategies day and night, waiting on that return on the investment so we can wake up and act as someone else’s blessing sets the theme for the first track off The Moonlight Groove. Alpha$man dips into each verse with stability and a consistent flow as the violin and electric guitar loop penetrate the beat.
Track Two: Building Blocks
Back in the kitchen and still on a mission, Alpha$man explores the grind and takes listeners through his journey of building a foundation made for the long run. He incorporates a brief reflection on family and respect before jumping back into his main focus, his building blocks.
Track Three: WRLD$HIT
Pull up, because he's on that WRLD$hit. The subtle repetitive synth instruments go crazy as Alpha$man delivers his signature consistent flow. This is a flex on empires and a stealing of beauties.
Track Four: My Phone
He’s going in expeditiously with a slight Latin spin, shining a light on the assumptions made when his focus is on his phone, even though he’s penning his flows.
Track Five: Cadenza Talk
Connecting every punch with his raw flow, Cadenza Talk is content classic. The beat represents the streets and embodies a cypher-like feel that is unskippable and unstoppable.
“The inspiration for The Moonlight Groove production is simply that this is what we do. SDot (@stephen_corey93) and Bernard (@BernardTheBastard) create the sounds, and I take them and give them life. Aside from my personal drive, one of my biggest influences when it comes to music is Curren$y. The way he works and delivers project after project non-stop, all year long, and at a high level, shows me I can do that too. I know I’m capable of reaching that high level of greatness. I’m inspired by the way he’s been able to stick to doing his own thing, taking the 'side streets', performing at smaller venues, and making the experience more intimate and organic despite what may be expected in present-day rap.” - Alpha$man
Track Six: Around You and Track Seven: No Pity hit a welcomed slowdown; the tempo pulls back, the energy drops a gear, but the lyrical persistence and flow consistency doesn’t take a back seat. Alpha$man blows smoke and takes a moment to let the beat breathe, driver’s seat only
Track Eight: Lunar Landscape
Slightly cosmic like the track title, Lunar Landscape is a jumble of unpredictable lyrical emphasis that gives weight to the quotes found within; there’s a beat to lyric tension, and quite simply, it works.
Track Nine: Collection
Alpha is never stressed, always understanding that there is a lesson that is destined, and you have to add it to the collection. He has a lot to say; there’s a lot to express with every bit of life experience, and he engages his thoughts into song, dropping wisdom to those who are listening.
Track 10: Ancestral Plane
Colliding his world of rap with his celestial intellect is the best way to end a body of work. The Moonlight Groove comes to a close with sonical luminary that's full of ambience and chill flow; catch the drift and fly towards home.
