Texas native Jaytovxn and fellow wordsmith D0rr1an deliver eye-catching visuals for 'Caption'
If Jaytovxn were to put ‘Alchemist’ at the top of his resumé, nobody could question it. With a growing catalogue of sonic goodness, and armed with a the distinct drawl of his hometown, the Texas native now returns with the much-anticipated visuals for his most recent release ‘Caption’. Featuring Louisiana local D0rr1an who invites a fresh perspective and playful sound into the fold, this is a collaboration not to be missed.
“‘Caption’ is about living life to the fullest, and a call to action to not categorise your life by one caption - life is greater than that. This is really me just flexing on the people who doubted me all throughout high school.” - Jaytovxn
Having created a sound that resembles a transformative potion of otherworldly hip hop and echoes of euphonious electronic genres, the master of alchemy Jaytovxn has stirred up some magic yet again. By choosing the perfect musical elements and seamlessly integrating them, this new offering lends itself to a listening experience that is helplessly intoxicating yet and could easily turn up the heat in a club setting.
A cocktail of trap and hip hop, showcasing a harmonious partnership between upbeat rapping flares and an intoxicating flow, the track is balanced with a gritty, head-nodding baseline. Having delivered a catalogue of new material already this year with his recent album release ‘Essence’, Jaytovxn’s fascination with sound and melody formation is ever-growing.
The accompanying music video packs just as much of a punch with its raw, pared back yet playful style, as Jaytovxn and D0rr1an bounce off of one another from verse to verse. Coupled with a refreshingly different sound that is also consistent with the stylistic trends of today’s hip hop and r&b soundscapes, Jaytovxn’s presence continues to grow exponentially as he explores all avenues of creative expression.
Riding the impactful wave of his last release ‘ABOW’, his passion only piques more as he strikes the perfect balance of mellow cadence and recite-worthy hooks resulting in a cleverly complex track in wonderfully simple clothing. As Jaytovxn continues to interlink classic, evergreen rap styles with pleasing, unexpected flips, his signature unruffled and unhurried flow is one that resonates with every hip hop and r&b lover.
Coupled with his stoic, efficient rap style and winking wit, this is an artist born out of pure organic growth. As his dynamic background and points of reference ground him, he embarks on a coming of age journey. The result being an effortlessly energetic soundscape for Summer.
