Jevon – “Where the Clouds Do Part”


Jevon’s new track “Where the Clouds Do Part” captivates from the get-go. A precise, captivating flow drives to a haunting melodic twist within the beat. The 44-second mark signals a shift in piano melody, followed quickly by wordless haunting backing vocals. What’s very evident is Jevon’s knack for structurally vibrant songwriting that feels fresh and alive. The Los Angeles-based MC/producer takes influence from the Golden Age of hip-hop, and has considerable experience. He released his first album Friday in 2012, following that up in 2017 with the album Trap Saiyan. This past New Years Day, Jevon released the second installment, Trap Saiyan 2. That release, along with the new “Where the Clouds Do Part,” shows that 2020 is likely to be a big year for Jevon.

Jevon elaborates more on the track’s creative process below:

“I was going through instrumentals on YouTube and this beat just grabbed me. I reached out to the producer and he agreed to give it to me no questions asked. When I began writing to it I wanted to showcase the art of pure hip hop, so I rapped straight through with no hook. I added the samples in the intro and outro because I felt they fit perfect with the vibe and message. This song along with most of my songs is about becoming legendary, a status I hope to one day achieve if I haven’t already.”

“Where the Clouds Do Part” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of March 2020’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Indie Hip-Hop.
