There is nothing quite like the sound of a smooth hip hop track. For some hip hop aficionados, it’s hard to explain to avid non listeners how a repetitive beat can be so addicting. It just is. As I listen to “The Vibe” by New York emcee and music producer THE AUDIBLE DOCTOR, I feel myself being consciously drawn in without exactly knowing why. It’s a pull that just happens. The steady thump rhythms quickly become echoed by my head bobbing up and down in perfect unison. A reaction that is natural and free to me. The infectious beat serves as an ideal platform to showcase some crazy good guest rhymes thrown down by TMH! favorite ODDISEE and HASSAAN MACKEY. And the slick flow from THE AUDIBLE DOCTOR is right on point once again. There is a nice hint of jazz and a little bit of soul underneath the surface which is accentuated through beautiful splashes of piano and brass flurries. The resulting overall sound is genuine hip hop quality at the very least. I guess it’s not so hard for me to explain why I love this track after all!
“The Vibe” is a great first single from THE AUDIBLE DOCTOR’s upcoming EP “The Summer Tape”. With an amazing collection of guest features on the release, the self-produced album is sure to be one of my favorite hip hop releases this year! “The Summer Tape” drops next Tuesday!
