Electronic meets hip-hop in M3staken’s new album

Screen Shot 2016-06-26 at 11 (1400x1400) (2)

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.

KADI Sends Out A Message With ‘Turn U On’

Listen up R&B/ hip-hop lovers as KADI’s latest tune, ‘Turn U On’ is one you should be chasing and it even has a powerful message behind, straying from some of the typical representations of women in the genre.

KADI has always felt that the industry portrays the wrong idea, suggesting that women can only get far if they are prepared to sexual in terms of their image. Concerned for the younger generation of girls listening to this kind of music, KADI is keen to help them realise that this is not the case; that women can succeed without ‘having a big ass or showing your breasts’. 

‘Turn U On’ combines clever and witty lyricism with a strong agenda that aims to empower women and move away from conventional images in hip-hop. KADI is aggressive and confident in her rapping style, but this only supports the message she is trying to put across, and she does this effortlessly, never deviating from the aura of cool that surround her.

With some quality production values and an equally professional video, KADI is without a doubt on the way up with her brand of meaningful hip-hop-rap.
