In the tradition of quality storytelling lyrics Eloquor returns with his latest offering THE DON. A solid EP that comfortably balances his reflective and introspective lyrics with tales of wild nights out on the town and comical misfortunes.
While writing songs for the EP Eloquor returned to a more positive headspace. Working with his trademark storytelling style The Don enabled him to enjoy the creative process and to not take things too seriously. Even the title is slightly tongue in cheek
“I was feeling really confident with writing my music, feeling boss with it so I called it ‘The Don’, plus my real name is Donny so it fits”
The EP kicks off with Say Yeah a comical story about a man who enjoys himself a little too much at some after work drinks and is driven by an up tempo organ fuelled beat produced by Jase Beathedz. Had me Blinded sees Eloquor team up with German producer Pokerbeats (Hilltop Hoods) where he gets a little more introspective and reflects upon his prior jaded perspective of the music industry.
Not one to shy away from exploring darker topics Eloquor takes a left hand turn with the Must Volkoff (Pang Productions) produced Migrate. This sample based sinister joint is accompanied by the mesmerising vocals of Andrew Bautista and examines the life of a woman dealing with the pressures of parenthood. Eloquor reassures the listener with the underlying message to seek professional help when life gets on top of them. The EP concludes with Mindin’ My Biz where Eloquor lets his imagination run loose to this synth heavy electronic banger provided by renowned producer DIZZ1 (Tru Thoughts, Roots Manuva).
With a career spanning over ten years, ‘The Don” is Eloquor’s eighth release. Clearly demonstrating his passion for the craft, evolution as a lyricist and ability to tackle a diverse range of topics Eloquor maintains his place at the forefront of the underground hip hop scene.
