Grand, the new collaborative project from producer Maja 7th and emcee Dominique LaRue exemplifies the saying ‘Half short, twice strong‘. The duo deliver a 9 track body of work that displays lyrical depth, wit, engaging musical arrangement,cohesive to say the least. They found a formula,stuck to it through and through and it works to say the least. No unnecessary features or skits,they skipped all of that and served us something thorough instead. This is that smooth,souled out music that anyone can easily gravitate to.
My choice tracks: Happyness, Paint The Town, Get The Money, Seems Like Heaven
After over a year of working this project aptly titled ‘GRAND,’ Anderson, IN born and raised producer Maja 7th and Columbus, OH’s own Dominique Larue as a newly formed duo, have put together an 8 track extended play of cohesive rhymes and production. Maja 7th is the epitome of musicality with his background in music theory, as well as being highly skilled on piano, french horn and trumpet. This one producer, one emcee project brings you some of Dominique Larue’s most personal lyrics to date with songs like‘Freedom’ and ‘Feels Good,’ the album also showcases her fun side and highlights her underrated storytelling ability.
‘GRAND’ has minimal collaborations with only Columbus based artist features, in Valure, Micah Robinson and Kim Joyce, which first and foremost allows Dominique Larue to convey her own brand of raw emotion on each song alot more freely than some of her previous offerings, over this well crafted, distinctive Maja 7th soundscape. The #GRAND album release party will be held on March 15th in Indianapolis, Indiana at Sabbitcal, presented by BringingDownTheBand.com, there will also be a Columbus, Ohio release party this April 4th at Double Happiness.
