What is an emcee?
An emcee has a command of language, top notch wordplay and delivery, and pays close attention to the words he chooses. An emcee wants you to hear every word he says. An emcee has command over all elements of the music and doesn’t simply rap over it, but becomes one with it, both dictating and adapting with the ebbs and flows of the soundscape. On the “No Music” EP, JSWISS shines as the epitome of an emcee.
Whether it’s the feel-good vibes of “Sunshine To Rain”, the party vibes of title track “No Music” or the introspective bars of “Figure It Out” JSWISS demonstrates that’s he’s not a rapper, but an emcee and an artist.
For this 6-track EP, JSWISS gathers a collection of talented musicians, many of whom have helped forge his impressive live show, for a unique blend of hip hop, soul, funk and jazz. The title “No Music” refers to the fact that when music becomes so much of your life (as a listener or artist) that its a constant, it’s No Music, it’s just an extension of Life.
