Esseno – Funked Up: BBQ Music Volume 1

Northwest summers best believe its one of the better things you can experience when you visit the upper left. All that is needed is that soundtrack to accommodate all the activities and functions you will be attending. Esseno looks new but its just a revised spelling for the artist who used to go by S-n-O. Little easier in pronouncing the title properly but with the name change comes the first project which is “Funked Up: BBQ Musiv Volume 1”. This is kind of like Esseno’s third project after his first solo Jus A Sip and being all over priceless productions debut compilation. Esseno worked with a lot of the same producers as previous keeping it lit with west coast sounds in getting RC The Trackaholiq, Roc Phella, plus Ell from priceless productions. As a change up you can expect spot production from Brainstorm, Kamaine, and Big Jibbah as well as features from Fatal Lucciauno. Grynch, Neema, and Lil Gene aka Sandman. As a new un-biased listener Esseno’s last project kind of fumbled but not in the sense that it was flat out terrible. It was more so Esseno knew the sound and artist he wanted to be but hurdles as a new artist made it so not everything quite lined up. Funked Up is a 100 times better literally. Esseno’s flow sounds smooth and crisp more maligned with the thought that he has been doing this for awhile versus it only being his second album. Brings you back to a better time musically when all the videos looked like a legit fun time versus all coordinated fun. This is a start to finish summertime ready album and its just good music you can relax and have a good time to. Like seeing everyone have a good time you just leave it as is and enjoy the ride. This is one is on I-Tunes so its easier for all the digital heads to grab!
