Julius Jay and Hazmat are two Montreal based hip hop artists that frequently work together. Their creative lyrical structure and overall flow have worked repeatedly well together on several tracks like "Lazy Dayz" and "Too Long". The latest release from these two musicians is a collaboration with Ashlan Phoenix: a notorious mood maker and tempo tweaker. The talent entangled throughout the lyrical verses of "Serenity" is a positive sign of authenticity.
The subtle sounds of someone smoking at the start create the perfect atmosphere for how you should feel when listening to this track. The genius generated through Julius Jay's first verse manages to touch on hip hop's soul and his philosophy of life. There is a smooth transition over into Hazmat's spree, where he finishes "Serenity" on a faster tempo. A gentle melody layers the whole auroma that lastly barely three minutes total. More good music is likely to come from these three so stay satisfied with "Serenity" until the next release.
