The transcendent realm of music has long served as a paradigm of human creativity and expression. Within this ever-evolving world of sound, a rare few artists emerge whose melodies move minds and uplift souls in enduring ways. DAX - the Canadian singer, rapper, and songwriter - is undoubtedly one such luminous spirit.
This musician is back with "God’s Eyes", which wastes no time introducing itself with its dramatic production. DAX's dynamic and passionate rapping shine as always over the rich instrumentation. The production is perhaps our favorite yet from DAX, elevating both his singing and raps, instead of taking a backseat. Rap songs often have understated beats to emphasize the lyrics, but here the music shares center stage. The amount of talent and thought put into the arrangements makes it just as much of a star as DAX's words.
And DAX's lyrics deserve acclaim, as expected from the incredible songwriter. He reflects humanity's innate sinfulness since birth, our tendency to demonize religion and corrupt the church.
In the chorus, DAX affirms he's never seen through God's eyes but has witnessed the devil's work on Earth. "I’ve never God’s eyes
But I seen the devils / He walks with man on Earth / At different levels." DAX wonders whether the Devil "hates and meddles" - trying to steal souls and turn humans into "rebels." Yet DAX resolves never to "settle," walking his "lone road" as a "vessel" chosen by God.
DAX also shows his aptitude for structuring a narrative over the course of a song. In the second verse, he expounds on the ideas designated early on, presenting vivid scene-setting lines like "In the midst of the pain, disdain and the media's push of all this garbage." His flow gains momentum as he delves into harsh social truths, touching on how "they fabricate the truth, then we all monetize the gossip."
The song's climax finds DAX overflowing with introspection about the state of the world, questioning whether we've gone too far astray to ever find our way again. When he soulfully belts out "We're in hell on earth and it's gonna collapse," you feel the full force of his disappointment in humanity's moral decay.
DAX's spiritual themes and social commentary rise above typical rap bravado. His pieces feel ripped from personal diaries, while songs like "God's Eyes" sound like epics filled with truth. The production makes his messages hit even harder, enhancing the lyrical content. DAX always pours thoughtfulness and care into his art, with results that inspire his ever-growing audience.
DAX has topped over a billion YouTube views, with 3 million monthly Spotify listeners, for good reason. Each new track feels like a level up, as he pushes his talents into the new sonic and thematic territory. "God's Eyes" shows he still has much left to say, with the poetic flair and raw talent to say it in a way that ensures you're hanging on every word.
