Vision Inspired Music (VI Music) is thrilled to present young alternative artist, Robin-Huws’ first project, ”HUES The Mixtape (Vol.1)”. The 14-track mixtaped was produced by VI’s talented EKKO, ReynoldsTGM and Robin-Huws himself, also with credits from Quakes, Kris-D and Gordon Blackwell.
Robin-Huws proves himself quite the storyteller on ”HUES” both in individual songs and through a few songs with a running theme. ‘Forgotten Love’ is slow, spacious and pensive as he discusses a former lover and this lament continues in ‘Kimberly’, which gets more upbeat towards the end and leads to the more hopeful ‘Voice on the Radio’. In ‘Lifeless’, with the help of Akotowaa and Fu, he narrates the story of a young man with suicidal thoughts, feeling trapped in ‘lifeless cycles’.
According to the artist himself: ”The most challenging thing about creating #HUES was overcoming my fears of failure and low self esteem. As funny as it may sound, I’ve never been confident in my voice. And that was one of the most challenging things I had to overcome”.
The soundscape of ‘HUES’ is impressive, with fun and danceable tracks such as ‘Dear Diary’ and ‘Pretty Lady’ as well as bold forays into rock instrumentals in ‘Child of Light’. This is in addition to the simpler R & B sounds of ‘All I Want Is To Be Your Champ’ and ‘Run’. Either way, Robin-Huws voice shines through beautifully and the tape is definitely set to garner the recognition due him.
