[LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA] On this mixtape review we are debuting Dork/Gamer/Hip-Hop-Nerdcore Producer/Artist and Writer NonSenze with his latest mixtape GAMEDORK: Eat Sleep Kill Robots. One thing that really stands out about NonSenze is his inspiration for his music, from 80’s /90’s Hip-Hop, Rock, R&B, old-school video games, zombie flicks, marijuana, movies & basically all things that are apart of the geek culture. While growing up in the era of Hip-Hop, where it was extremely important to sound original. Nonsenze tried to utilize what he’s learned from the greats of the past and present, to attempt to inspire future artist to find that spark of creativity.
Part 1 of 2 mixtapes, GAMEDORK: Eat Sleep Kill Robots has eighteen tracks. All titled with tracks inspired from his passed from video games, movies, and moments. Let’s see what I think about Nonsenze’s project with my review.
[01. I LOVE GOLD] Starting off the mixtape, we have a very familiar sample in the hook. Remember in the Austin Powers movie, the Mike Myers character Goldmember yelling “I Love Gold“. One thing that I find to be really makes the track stand out is Nonsenze’s flow, it really just entices you to listen more. Nonsenze is also very witty with his lyrics.
[03. DEAR PRINCESS] I really like the 8-bit retro gaming production on this track. Nonsenze and featured artist My Purple Monkey go in-depth with their story-telling on their adventure to go and save Princess Peach. I love the Super Mario samples and references. Nonsenze gets romantic on this one.
[05. FIVE NIGHTS AT FREDDY’S] Even though I’ve never seen or played Five Nights At Freddys, but I’m very familiar with how popular it is. I decided to look it up and Five Nights at Freddy’s, is a point-and-click survival mystery horror video game created by Scott Cawthon. That sounds pretty badass, and Nonsenze opened the door to this video game. In the track he describes how long his shift will be (level), trying to survive the game seems intense. I love the hook! It’s extremely catchy!
[07. IM FLOATING] This track is dope, it reminds me of a mix of Gym Class Heroes with a dash of Outkast. Nonsenze is so descriptive with his story-telling. I can visualize everything he mentions. Nonsenze talks about how his floating alone and in his own element. I really like his flow on this one.
[08. GOTTA CATCH EM’ ALL] If it’s not obvious, this track is about Pokemon. The production brings a dark element to the track while Nonsenze mentions a list of Pokemon he’s attempting to catch. Searching for Pokemon has become an epidemic since it’s taking over Nonsenze’s reality. Who can blame him? I feel the same way… How many Pokemon does Nonsenze mention on this track?
[12. SUPER NINTENDO] How can you not like this track? Nonsenze goes in with the Biggie Sample of Super Nintendo Sega Genesis! I like the switch up from the original track. Nonsenze video game references are on point. He talks about eating weak rappers like Kirby.
[14. SHOVEL CROSS] I like how this track isn’t really about video games. I feel Nonsenze really opens up on this track. He even mentions how he feels about his dads passing. How he feels about rappers who can’t cut it. And how can I not catch The Flash references in the hook regarding Barry Allen’s speed. ⚡️ (Geeked Out, Huge Fan of The Flash Here). The track also features hip-hop artist Geoh. I found this track to be a dope listen and something you can vibe too!
[17. WELCOME TO THE SURFACE] Nonsenze brings to life what life is like on the surface. Unfortunately it’s not the paradise you’ll think of. It’s more like the struggle and the misinformed following along without thinking the consequences. I really get a Kanye West vibe on this one. This is the eye opener track.
This concludes my review of Nonsenze’s mixtape GameDork: Eat Sleep Kill Robots (Part 1). Out of the 18 Track project, I was able to breakdown the ones I found to really stand out to me. I find Nonsense’s music is for everyone, but is the perfect backdrop for skateparks, Adult Swim randomness, video games, stoner activities and so much more.
