When Nathan S. first slid TreaZon’s new leak my way he said it was “something different,” and after one listen that description proved to be pretty damn accurate (go figure). While we’ve seen TreaZon develop as an artist via work with XV and Mickey Factz, the Cleveland kid has once again creatively risen to another level with Midnight Train. Opting for some almost hypnotically dark, organ-drenched production from Charlie Hilton, here TreaZon turns his prose into a film-noir type of poetry, describing both the his personal trials and his struggle to be a successful performer and artist: “Even though it’s the darkest and it’s the bleakest night / everything I’m seein’s bright / every single thing’s aligned.” Now those are the words we all need to hear. If you’re digging this track, and you really should be, be on the lookout for his next project, Breathe Life 2, which currently has no release date. And you know you can count on DJBooth for all the latest updates.
