From the first few beats of King Gheno’s “Plan in Motion,” I knew I was going to like this artist. When Gheno describes this series of singles as “brain tracks” for meditation, I knew it was for me. Cerebral music much needed in a troubled word.
Gheno’s joints are like hip hop throat singer jams. The chants are hypnotic. The truth resonates. Every single piece is cinematic. And everything happens on these tracks solely at the fingertips of King Gheno.
Listen to how Gheno describes this series:
“Brain train tracks are meditation tracks that are strategically crafted with affirmation to retrain the subconscious mind. The hypnotic hip-hop beats will help to put the listener in a receptive state that will then allow the listeners subconscious to receive the affirmation that are in the song.”
“Build My Manz Up” reaches right out of the ether and knocks you off your feet. Sometimes it’s good to be recalibrated. The relentless lyric hits you with that special Gheno chant style.
“The Plug” is strong and stays with you. That beat bangs along with a simple and resonant lyric. Meditative, indeed.
“Brain Train – Grand Uprising” sounds like a lost track from Blade Runner 2049. It’s got the spacey vibe highlighted by a flavoring of plucky strings. In space, no one can hear you grind.
“Brain Train – Abundance, Wealth, Success” truly embraces Gheno’s throat singing vibe. It’s a prayer. It’s a plea. It’s an admonition. Powerful.
