“Death Of A Beatmaker”, the debut EP from Milwaukee’s own Klassik, is a five-track opus of sonically complex and original production coupled with clever, creative, and inspirational lyricism that is as intriguing as it is personal. Touching on everyday subjects in innovative, genre-bending formats, Klassik provides his own unique take on what it feels like to really pursue a dream. Detailing that very pursuit with fellow InkRed artist OYE on “ChasingTheFame”, the duo’s introspective offerings on how to conquer the ups-and-downs of dream chasing combine effortlessly with Klassik’s smooth, soulful melodies on the chorus, lending itself heavily to 90s era R&B/Hip-Hop. Keeping with the theme of pursuit, Klassik and the only other feature on the project (Milwaukee artist Blizz McFly), triumphantly declare that they
are a force to be reckoned with on “WeUp/EverybodyDown”, surpassing many of their peers with exceptional lyricism, and a densely layered and symphonic production style not seen in a Hip-Hop setting since “Late Registration”. From start to finish, “Death Of A Beatmaker” is a masterfully arranged and thought-provoking work that is a melting-pot of genres, combined to evolve Klassik’s fearless originality into a new standard of musicality, and lay to rest all else that is not that.
