Soul Clap: Mishon – “2.04.15” EP


Mishon has a little homework for us.  Since Columbia didn’t think the music he was cooking up in the studio with producers, including Jermaine Dupri, and Bryan-Michael Cox was good enough to move forward with an album release,  Mishon decided to let his fans hear his hard work and judge for themselves.  He recently turned 22, he’s ready for new beginnings and he’s starting by doing things his way.

Mishon released his 7-track 2.04.15 EP on SoundCloud confident that what he created was some good music.  It sounds like he had good reason to be secure with the love songs that his talent produced.  He knows that his clear falsetto does the right thing every time he lays it on a record and  Mishon sits it right on the hook of the EP’s third track, “Belong to Me” making it easy for every woman to decide who she belongs to.

Showing props to the dopeness of the 90’s, “Be Mine” samples Case’s “Touch Me, Tease Me” and the R&B youngster respects the era by still keeping the 90’s feel we recognize when we hear Foxy Brown’s voice on the song.

2.04.15 is  full of goodness, but the track that really shines on this project is the final one, “Lay It On Me,” produced by $hon and Young Bugatti.  The skill in his background vocals on “Lay It On Me” impresses you as his lead vocals take you through his feelings of wanting his girl back after being without her for so long.  Nice way to save (one of) the best for last.
