I had heard of MC Boogalu, but I’ll be honest I never really looked into his work. Here we are now and his band Alert is signed to new CHH powerhouse label Humble Beast. Humble Beast has been proving all year that they can release quality music for free consistently. Alert released a free EP called “Red Opus .45” and let me tell you I was pleasantly surprised at all ends of the short project.

Alert is a combination of the Roots with their live instrumentation and just talented emceeing by Boogalu. The whole EP is bangin’ allow me to say that first and follow that by saying that it’s bangin’ music with a message. Boogalu is like a reporter in this EP letting the world know if its surroundings. The single “All I See Is Red” is the first track off the EP and it does just that. I think what makes this EP stand out from the usual live instrumentation project is that there are interludes in the songs. It’s not just your standard verse, chorus, verse, chorus, verse, chorus. We get blessed to hear the sound of the actual band that encompasses the Alert name.

In order to not give away the whole EP, after an interlude (which I actually found pointless, on a 5-track EP) we get my favorite song “Red Dawning”. I think this track is the climax of the EP, everything was great in this song, from the extremely catchy hook, to the instrumentation and Boogalu’s verses. As I stated earlier Boogalu acts as a reporter to the world around him, reporting the problems in our society. However at the same time he always proposes the solution to the problems, Christ, love, peace and everything in between.

Alert has me hyped for the album that they’re working on, because this EP was straight amazing, I was surprised and impressed by what this band brought to the table. Go and download Alert’s “Red Opus .45” because it is an amazing EP. The only knock I had against the project was the interlude “Red Flection” I just think for an EP that was only 5 tracks the interlude kind of took away one of those tracks. But that minor knock should not stop you from downloading the free EP.
