It’s quite the commodity to partake in a face-to-face encounter with a first-class musical act prowling the neighboring communities around you, where creative synergy often goes unnoticed amidst the eventful yet unobtrusive streets within. Florida is a complicated state in its own right, where bizarre often-unexplainable phenomena overwhelm newsfeeds of all spectrums.
Our introduction to both Aaron Sriro and Kamari Esson may not totally fit Florida’s peculiar setting, but as members of what we gather to be the Deep South, it sure is an oddity considering the vast coverage on the more northern ends of Miami, and more recent Broward sectors. The commuter lifestyle is in fact largely understated in Florida, where a twenty-minute trip can easily surpass an hour and change. As a result of this, we observe a lacking system that doesn’t do such a great job at bringing distinction to the sourcing of content and the identification of the powers behind it.
The laid-back, cruisin’ persona South Florida adopted does however mesh well with This Is Something (EP), a three-piece project led by Aaron Sriro and Kamari Esson. We feel comfortable enough calling this the true debut of both respective parties, a once rare occurrence that has now received new light thanks to next-gen acts like Lil Yachty and Burberry Perry.
We had some difficulties pinpointing exactly where Aaron’s vocalizations fit within the EP, but it is a development that will be interesting to watch in the near future. We will reserve additional judgment after the next few drops, but This Is Something (EP) is certainly worth a spin for those who have been scoping surging Florida talent as of lately.
