The timeless battle between good and evil is a story that has been told countless times and evoked through song since the beginning of recorded music. But the story rarely takes place within the realm of one man's mind, and when it is, the line is drawn in an exaggerated way, resulting in unrealistic and unrelated characters.
Doxside Music Group producer IMAKEMADBEATS has broken the mold with his conceptual dual-EP project, Daylight/Nightlight. Featuring emcees Butta Verses and MidaZ the Beast respectively, the two pieces wholly represent the goodness of humanity and the darkest corners of man's soul.
Daylight finds Butta Verses (best known for his collaborative work with hip hop legends De La Soul) introspectively addressing the positive changes he knows he must make in his life, all while backed by IMAKEMADBEATS' emotionally charged and soulful production.
Nightlight flips the direction of its companion piece, and allows Doxside Music Group rapper MidaZ the Beast to do what he does best – slay hard-hitting tracks with a ferocity that has earned him a reputation amongst hip hop's lyrical elite. From alcoholism to themes of betrayal to hurling threats towards faulty show promoters, Nightlight is a visceral assault on listeners' eardrums that still maintains a thump sure to maintain head nods and neck snaps.
Previously released in an edited form to rave reviews amongst bloggers and online publications, Doxside Music Group is proud to release the complete version of Daylight/Nightlight, with previously unreleased tracks and inspiring album artwork by Florida visual artist Jon Didier. For listeners seeking substance in the soundtrack of their lives, IMAKEMADBEATS' Daylight/Nightlight is a breath of fresh air that demands to be heard.
