REVIEW @ BANDIDGE.COM:
Whisper it, but Poizunus could be a serious person to contend with soon.
Having already secured opening slots on tours with industry heavyweights such as Obie Trice, Method Man and DJ Jazzy Jeff, and having praise heaped on him from this side of the Atlantic from Killa Kela, heâs certainly paying his dues.
Active Dreaming Disorder (A.D.D.) is only an E.P, but already shows that there is a raw potential bursting to come to the fore. Having overcome a speech impediment as a youngster through speech therapy, heâs already proven to come out trumps against tough opposition.
Fusing elements of soul, as well as traditional East Coast hip-hop styles in amongst a typically skittish and quirky 11 track CD (where most tracks donât top more than two minutes), Poizunus shows a style to the genre through his beat boxing and personality that often gets painfully overlooked in favour of glamour and status.
It could be argued that hailing from Toronto, Canada allows the artist to have a fresher approach to the often-polarised U.S. market, which has put him in good stead. Winning the illustrious Scribble Jam Beatbox Battle this year has firmly placed him on the map - but what about the recordings?
From the outing, itâs the backing music that lures you in the most, as it sets the scene for some subtle, cleverly introduced storyline working, as Poizunus seems to hit the snooze button through Reality Check and Dreaminâ, where the latterâs catchy beats have you reeled in like a sea bass.
The following Wake Up and Waiting deal with the daily grind from home to office by public transport, whilst using a slightly airy, Japanese vibe to make the whole thing touch the realm of other worldliness. Waitingâs heavier, darker beat that morphs from the innocent form of the previous offsets well against the I.T. crowd bustling in the back.
The styles continue to come in half-skit, half-constructed song format. Two of the strongest selections on show are the crime-laden Just To Get Paid, and the stark look on city priorities in Whatâs Life?, where a run-down individual is blamed for people not getting to work, whilst an acoustic slowly plucks away over Marisa Rossyâs soothing vocal prowess.
It comes to a pinnacle in In The Studio. A soulful number that is reminiscent of The Rootsâ freestyle moments on The Tipping Point shows what this man can do when given a little musical support. He works well on his own, but with a group alongside, itâs an eye-opening spectacle.
Closing statements Nitey Nite and Dreaminâ once more bring it back round for a complete 360 degree conclusion. The dark depths that are explored through the vocal beats and the inclusion of a storm on the latter lurch these tunes between gangster styles through to 1980âs rap.
Poizunus shows the raw potential to be an exciting prospect to watch on A.D.D. His quirky, intelligent nature have put him on a level more suited to where hip-hop should be at, and even captures the lo-fi sounds of street battles on Just To Get Paid.
With a little more attention on fleshing out the beats at the manâs disposal, whilst keeping to the premise of not holding tracks to ransom by MCâs, then Poizunus will be a joy to listen to on an LP. The MTV generation style length of tunes does leave you wanting more, and with his stock rising nicely, there probably wonât be too long to wait to get a bigger fix.
