Flynn Adam, Such A Time EP
Flynn Adam
Such A Time EP



Artist Info: Discography
Album length: 4 tracks: 13 minutes, 55 seconds
Street Date: January 27, 2009


You may not realize this, but Flynn Adam has been making hip-hop tunes for over ten years now. He may be more recognized as a member of the LA Symphony crew, but he actually has released a few full-length albums and a couple of EPs along the way. His latest solo venture is an EP installment of sorts. Gotee Records and Flynn are planning to release a few short EPs for 2009 and this is the first of them. So, should you go catch Flynn on tour this year so you can grab a physical copy? Let's see.

The track "Such A Time" delivers a meaningful message to today's people with urgency. It's filled with neck-jerking beats and lyrics such as, "I know there's a purpose and plan. A lot of things I don't understand. Death, taxes, rent, and the rest." There's also a remix version which gives an already good track some very unique production for the listener to enjoy. The other song on the EP is "Just Don't Get It," which offers a one-of-a-kind musical background laid under clever lyrics about still being in love with a girl who left. Finally, the release also has a music video for "Such A Time" and it's a typical hip-hop video; just a bunch of people dancing around for about three and a half minutes.

Overall, Flynn delivers a very unique sound that may prove to be an acquired taste. I certainly enjoy the tunes, but doubt that ever hip hop fan will. If you've liked LA Symphony's work or an artist like Pigeon John, you will definitely enjoy this short but sweet EP.
