Philly’s Aquil gives us a musical national anthem for his Land of Synth.
Some say modern music is saturated by unnecessary effects, taking away the natural sound of vocals and instrumentation. If you’re one of those people, it’d probably take something special for you to appreciate careful use of these synthetic ideas. Enter Aquil, a rapper straight out of Philly. His lyrical quality and ability to connect with his listeners makes him stand out, helped along by the calibre of production. On Land of Synth, Aquil’s rhymes meander with the sounds of Knxwledge, Astronote, Arcka, Abjo and others to create a vibrant musical landscape. The lyricism is strong and varied, dabbling on the subjects of politics and war but also the lighter side of life.
