Dex Amora has been shining light on Seattle for a bit now alongside some of his equally-talented local comrades. He slid onto my radar thanks to his work with J'Von under Dex Dynamite (later becoming Dex Dynamite Saga with Zuke Saga joining the pack) and his sharp presence over the weaving production was more than enough to keep my ears out for him. Since then he has experimented with his sound with a few projects from psychedelic raps to classic boom-bap vibes.
'Ai Level' is more definitve for Dex. goldenbeets' production is jazzy and smooth, but a bit off-kilter. The slight off-hits of the soundscape complement Dex's raw emotion in a seemingly bright light. Imagine a golden sunset with a dark hue of purples as Dex darts through the production and elaborates on love and reflecting on his life with impressive rhyme schemes and impeccable flow.

This one of them albums you can’t wait to put your folk onto. A masterpiece I would put on par with “a piece of strange”. Hopefully we can see another collar project by Sheisty Khrist and Lofidel in the future. $haVabii
