Electronic meets hip-hop in M3staken’s new album

After releasing his debut album, Apex, earlier this year- a combination of hip-hop beats with electronic effects and an intriguing classical piano edge, the young producer, M3staken has returned with his continuation record, Water Colors.

M3staken’s style is not your everyday type of music, in fact, it’s quite the opposite. Jarring rhythms and beats is what M3 does best, compiling complex musical structures with subtle melody and moody drones that underpin his work. Consequently, there’s a definite dark ambience to his music; a dissonance that is expertly crafted and formed into a challenging listen.

Growing up in South Carolina, M3staken takes influence from a wide range of artists including Joey Bada$$, Jamie XX and FKA Twigs.

With an ambitious sound that is difficult to pin down, M3staken is one to listen to if you’re even the remotest hip-hop fan.
