Wow. I had to start this post with 'wow' because, after listening to Searching Sylvan I was absolutely blown away. The leaked singles off of QuESt's mixtape didn't prepare me for the heavy emotional aspect layered in each track of Searching Sylvan. With guest verses from Melat and Linzi Jai, as well as a beautiful piece by Jon Bellion, in which Jon gives hope to all those looking for light at the end of the tunnel.
One thing that isn't thrown in your face when you're listening to Biscayne Blvd and No Love In The City is the fact that Visionary Music Group labelmate Logic produced these tracks. For more credits, one of my favorites being the highly recognized and ever-so-talented 6ix, and the story behind each track, I implore you check out SearchingSlyvan.Com. The artwork and descriptions add another dimension to each track, making the whole mixtape very relatable.
QuESt's mixtape is available for streaming below via his Soundcloud. Keep your eyes peeled for a tour to drop from the Visionary Music Group signee, it only makes sense after releasing a project that tells such a vivid story. As personal as live shows are, I'll definitely be looking forward to seeing him live for the second time.
