Dead excited tonight to be writing about someone from my neck of the woods! Our featured artist tonight is Indyo Chromatic out of Worcester, MA! My old Stomping Ground way back in the day when I was a little metal head, going to shows at the Palladium.
Indyo is from Trenton, NJ but he’s living in MA now. He grew up rapping, having gotten his start at the age of fourteen. He is a pianist and that would be pretty rad, if he were to incorporate that into his music somehow.
Indyo Chromatic – The Music
I love, LOVE Spanish Hip Hop. There’s something about it that touches me. I grew up in Boston, MA and hung around the Spanish chicks my age and it was what we listened to all the time.
Indyo’s music is FIRE! The instrumentals are right on and his flow is deliberate and strong, but fast as fuck. He raps in English and Spanish which is great, I love that.
His song “Sin Medio” starts off with a Bachata like feel with the instrumentals and then BAM – hard beats come in and BASS! But the Bachata piece stays playing softly in the background. It’s very Spanish gangster. Then, the Rump Pum Pa Pums come and I’m like YUPPP! Pumps you right up. Still with the deliberate delivery, packing a punch behind every word.
Then, there’s “Bring it on”. I will be featuring this track tonight on the Crystallized Beats Podcast. It is fucking great. The bass is where it’s at. It’s not blow your car apart bass, it is just the right amount to get your heart racing without the top of your head popping off.
He performs at the usual spots, clubs, festivals… but he also performs at sweet sixteens and I’m assuming Quincineras. I can picture the teenage girls fawning over him. I mean… look at him…
SPREAD THE GOOD WORD PEOPLE!
