Steezefield – Leave a Light On, Please (Mixtape)

By BiscayneHipHop

By Uptown Toney

A little over a year after releasing his debut project, Over the Edge, 847-native Alex Theesfield – better known to his fans as Steezefield – strikes back with a new 12-track collection of tunes entitled Leave a Light On, Please.

Starting off with a rather OVO-like sound, flow and vibe – the simp-y emo, Thank Me Later Drake, not the If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late Canadian/Jamaican accent Drizzy – Steezefield’s sing ands raps about love and life for a youngin out of a city-suburb. Producing a number of the records himself, Steeze also flows over beats by producers DJ Mustard, Cashmere Cat, NOVA, Noah Breakfast, Stwo, Subglo, PVNDV, HXNS, Billboard, and SG Lewis.

As things progress, Steezefield shows us who some of his other influences are with records like “Alone Interlude” which holds a sharp contrast to the works of Travis Scott, and “On My Way” with Emilio Paredes that not just samples PARTYNEXTDOOR but emulates his sound. This doesn’t last long though. The up-and-comer shifts into his own lane on songs such as “Supposed to Be,” “I Won’t Forget You,” and “Remember Me.”

Ending things on a strong level from a rapping stand point, Steeze also shows that he can flow with the best of them on tracks like “You’re on Your Own Now” and “Shadow” without breaking the cohesiveness of his project.

All in all, Leave a Light On, Please is a solid body of work. The orange-red sunsetting feel that the tape gives off isn’t new or genre breaking by far but Steez’s ability to take that trance, underwater type vibe and make it his own with infectious melody is part of the reason why the tape is good. The other part is the singer-songwriter/rappers ability to be so transparent with his …read more

Alex Jordahl – Death of Me

By BiscayneHipHop

By Uptown Toney

Every now and then, I come across a new artist or crew that peeks my interest. Often times it’s a combination of the artist, producer and crews synergy as a unit to consistently push out not just quality music but music that I, the listener, can relate to. As of late, Illinois-native Alex Jordahl and his frequent collaborator, artist/producer Steezefield, are at the top of my radar because of all the things previously mentioned.

Alex’s last single “One Time” was catchy and relatable enough to pull me in and see what dude was about. Although I wasn’t overly impressed with his project LOVEALEX, the guy does show promise, improving greatly with each new release. “Death of Me” is proof of that. Dedicated to a certain woman in his life, the young up-and-comer creates an easy listening, mid-tempo, Dream Pop meets Cloud Rap record that has him all in his thoughts feelings.

Kind of Pitchy at times vocally, but very melodic nonetheless. Steezefield on the boards also gives the track a nice bop that makes it highly replay-able. Take a listen above.
