Film/TV folks who are looking for a mysteriously seductive hip-hop track whose lyrics idolize a sexy female, might want to take a listen to “Fuego” by Denver-based artist Ace J who skillfully creates a moody swirl of voices and tones. “Make Me” has moments, especially its positive “Gotta get up!” (when life gets you down) message, but its boisterous energy is undermined by a beat that is just too plodding. On Ace’s best track, “FCC” (FloridaCalication), this landlocked artist shows his love of both right and left coasts with a fun, energetic song whose beachy vibe comes replete with steel drums. This song, with its EDM touches and solid rap flow, has real potential, if only it were a bit more cohesive.
