NAIROBI YETU (Album) - BLOCKA BEATS

Each artist that makes up the current music landscape is defined by nothing more than their own sense of individuality. 🌟 These acts stand out so vividly by how they embrace their individual nature by themselves through their music and image alike, but whenever they come together and do so collectively on a project, it’s always a fascinating thing to explore. 💯 And on “Nairobi Yetu” the album’s composition does well to be an almost ideal reflection of its title, by representing some of the best musical talent this city has to offer. 🤝The 12-song experience that is both conceptual and thematic, experiments sonically a great deal, hopping on a wide variety of massively atmospheric beats that are not only flexible in tempo and layout, but that also do well to compliment a host of new upcoming artists in the underground realm. 🍿 It’s a project that soars through the listener’s mind with all the grace in the world and right off the bat, the album-titled leading track is a masterful opening cut that features an all-too-gripping performance and perhaps the project’s most memorable hook that is a back-and-forth passage that becomes drilled in the listener’s head. 🎧 It’s opening tracks like this that effectively open the door for anyone to want to hear and explore more of the ever-progressive landscape that’s being drawn out. 🎶 And without a doubt the subsequent tracks continue to push music further onto the razor sharp tip of hip-hop’s cutting edge, carrying with them facets of openly experimental, free-forming, futuristic and warped genre ideations, that pushes each artist to step up to the plate and contribute their atmost with unabashed emotional honesty — both from a vocal and lyrical perspective alike. 🌹 Considering how many songs and features there are, it would be impossible to quickly break it all down, but after a couple of re-listens, it’s undoubtedly an experience that bites at the listener from the sheer sound of the music itself, right down to the meaningfully vivid songwriting at the same time. 📝
