Melodies and harmonies drenched in synthesizers and driven basslines with a twist of funkiness bring P-Rice’s “DeRealization EP” to life. Except, there is another noticeable difference. P-Rice isn’t the name listed on the cover of the “DeRealization EP”..instead it reads M.O.T.R. also known by Mind on the Run. Which is the alter ego of P-Rice, lost in the dimensions of funk & caught in a trance, his beats are for the trunk or for you to dance.
“DeRealization” delivers a solid effort for a 1st production release and reflects various of inspirations from other genres throughout the play. You may hear a little hip-hop, dub/club, R&B and funk throughout the catchy synth licks M.O.T.R. presents. You can listen to the “DeRealization EP” in the Soundcloud link up above.
