Kansas City based rapper, singer, producer, and DJ, CRRNT, is shifting gears with his first dance track single “Get To Me” featuring vocals by both CA$H CAM and Ruby Moon.
“’Get To Me’ is a love ballad encompassing a hopeless romantic looking for a connection in a world that seems empty of true connection. CRRNT writes about the lyrical inspiration. As he figures out how to maintain connections and not let go as he faces his fear of rejection, he finds himself taking a stand in a world that once discouraged him.
With plenty of bass and percussion to keep you captivated and grooving, the track manages a certain level of introspective trance that gets released through the catharsis of dance. It moves between ethereal moments where the bass tones feel fluid, spacious, and full of life and drops into more direct drive towards a realization, or moment of clarity.
At the very end, there is a rhythmic shift where a tremolo-heavy synthesizer takes over as the lead breaking up the previous musical foundation. The song feels like it starts to transform, which is, perhaps, a way to represent the way that rhythmic shifts can give way to immense change in a short amount of time. Like CRRNT you may find yourself in a state of flux and a moment may arise where you must choose whether to let the music take you to a new state of mind or stay in the trance that’s already been established.
“Get To Me” is available now on major streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music. Find this and more great music on the Alchemical Records Multigenre Mixture playlist on Spotify.CRRNT

Aria Velz is a director, TikToker, and Lesbian Media Enthusiast based in the D.C. area. On November 2nd, she sat down with me to talk about it all, from her latest production at Olney Theatre Center to the things that lead to her little corner on TikTok.
On October 29th, Olney Theatre Center wrapped its run of Prince Gomolvilas’ ‘The Brothers Paranormal.’ The disconcerting, borderline terrifying production was co-directed by Olney’s Senior Associate Artistic Director, Hallie Gordon, and Velz herself. The show was one of the spookiest times I have had in a theatre in quite some time. It was evident that the show was a well researched labor of love.
