Ceyeo is a Chicago-based experimental hip-hop producer who incorporates elements of rock in an eclectic mix to create intricate music. He recently came out with his debut track – “U Can’t Hide” – a somewhat aggressive, and motivating rap track infused with a pinch of electronica. Ceyeo breaks the barriers of genre with his compositions and his debut release is a great example of the sound he’s going for – music that is fresh, genreless and engaging.
The track begins with a bizarre electronic intro that introduces a hard-hitting beat. Over a mix of synth arpeggios and a deep sub-bass, Ceyeo shares a verse about “rapping over anything”, and he does exactly that while being. The track is backed by a blend of instruments, including strings, electric guitars, electronic drums, and wobbly synths. He raps a tight verse with a lot of emotion, and he delivers it with a confident delivery style, further enhancing the impact of the hook line – “You knowyou can’t hide”.
As the track progresses, intricate production additions and dynamic transitions play around while accompanying the change in pace in Ceyeo’s flow brilliantly! There’s a very professional touch to his rap verses. Paired with the eccentric fusion of sounds on this track, “U Can’t Hide” is one of those tracks that just sticks after one playthrough. With the plethora of similar-sounding songs out there nowadays, it’s always good to have something fresh that stands out from the crowd, and Ceyeo sure knows how to tap into that market! “U Can’t Hide”, being his debut release, shows the audience that there’s a lot more one could listen to and I’m sure his new fans are eager to hear more from him soon!
