J.W. CUDD: “Hips”

April 07, 2021 | Writer: Eric Reyes

I don’t know if it’s the end of quarantine or something in the air other than Covid, but artist J.W. Cudd has been on a solid streak of hits this year. His latest release, β€˜Hips’, is another great example of this creative wave.

J.W. Cudd has a finger on the pulse of his genre’s habits and leanings, and while he has so far proven adept at making these his own, β€˜Hips’ is something new. You can feel the trill of creation through this song, as J.W. Cudd steps into a new personal style. I’d say it’s honestly my favorite of his latest releases, having reviewed a few at this point.

He has a certain vocal quality here that is distinct to him, in tonality, sure, but he makes ample use of his own diction throughout. The mix is really engaging. A chill pace that keeps up with the vocal performance. It’s an easy listen, and an infectious one too, as I found myself listening to it over and over. It’s a good cruising tune too, something you can get lost in. The consistency of his overall style is what I think I like the most, even in this exciting departure from the norm. I know this is a J.W. Cudd song because of how it sounds, how it feels. Get familiar and listen to β€˜Hips’ today.
