Alejandro Blanco is a machine when it comes to putting out potential hits. His infectious energy and style is never short of impressive, and it’s clear that he didn’t abandon this talent with his new project AUGU$T. It’s 14 tracks long, or should I say 14 hits long? After hearing the tape in full for the first time today, I was amazed at how many songs I kept having to go back to in order to fully appreciate the artistry behind them. And that was definitely a consistent selling point for me. Blanco has it together, delivering songs that showcase his talent in the best light possible, each one showing how well he knows himself and his abilities.
I highly recommend listening to AUGU$T in full because of how well each emotion flows into the next with seamless transitions, presenting an incredibly cohesive project that accounts for every mood under the sun. With this, the relatability of this project is another underrated element. I can guarantee that any listener can find at least one song that resonates with them beyond just liking the production or the overall feel, just as I was able to find a handful of cuts that will live a long life in my personal playlist.
