From humble beginnings, Caleb Coradi jumps into a different atmosphere with his newest record, The Getaway. Disassociating himself with the materialistic style of rhyming, Coradi instead adapts a more down-to-Earth nature and proves himself as a natural lyricist and as a producer as well. From his earliest tracks to his debut projects, Caleb Coradi has made a name for himself and is slowly on his way up to being a real name in the local music scene of Pittsburgh, as well as progressing onto a more global sound.
Subtly is the catalyst to Coradi’s beginning track, “Trees” where Coradi explains, “Let’s go to a place where we got no service, where they can’t disturb us. We’ll be all alone, looking at the trees far from home,” before launching into a mix of slapping 808 percussion and warping synths that act sporadically for a moment before falling back into a soft-spoken rephrase of the chorus. The track itself shows signs of a jungled-style of music with tribal-esque percussion while keeping a modern twist and the following track, “Oasis” takes this modern twist and completely makes it the theme of the track. It uses rising synths and sudden bursts of 808’s with different modulations on Coradi’s voice that adds an additional layer of depth behind the production. “Oasis” has some of the tightest production on The Getaway and it is easily approachable, but the different styles of depth make the track feel more packed down than at first glance. Caleb Coradi is not just going to rap on The Getaway, he also does singing over acoustic tracks and this mix-up keeps a fresh style and the consistency is going to be broken up through both a solid mix of over-productive rap tracks with synthetic percussion and flashy instrumentals; to the acoustic tracks that focus on piano and guitar with a more subtle approach to the lyrical style as well.
Coradi shows that he is more than just a rapper, more than just a singer, but he is actually a versatile artist that is cheerful in his approaches to tracks and manages to let the twelve-track album never feel stale or that it drags on. With his feature list that adds more creative minds to the mix, to the sudden switches of style, Coradi is a display of courage within his music. He shows the necessary risks to succeed and shows just how bright his future is for his own personal getaway.
