WAVY - ACES

WAVY - ACES

Aces returns with a brand new offering that is nothing less than a hit. 🔊🔥 The song, aptly titled, “Wavy” definitely falls in line with my favourite songs from him and is a clear indication that he is indeed here to stay. 🍎 From the moment the track starts, soothing, satisfying and comforting are just a couple of words that came to mind after listening to the first couple of seconds. 🎧 Most songs don’t do that, but this one does, which makes it a piece worth falling in love with. 💯 And he manages to pull it off through mystifying, lighthearted synths of some sort that are brought out with crisp, tapping hats and claps as well as shaking, punchy 808s that bring some muddiness to the otherwise pure, clean instrumental. 🎶 Moreover, I can’t stop listening to it for a myriad of different reasons. 🎯 First, the beautiful vocal stylings that are present on this track are just remarkable. 🎙✨ The soothing nature cannot be done justice by listening once and you’ll find yourself hitting rewind to truly experience it. 🔂 Secondly, one aspect of his work that has always stayed true is his flair for the dramatic and the ways in which he gives his music thematic meaning and weight, which he most prominently does by way of his exceptional vocal delivery that ranges from the most sincere of passages to emphatic beltings in the blink of an eye. 🗣 Each passage in this track perfectly matches whatever tone he is going for in that given moment, adding that much more weight to the climatic atmosphere that acts as the crux of the track in its entirety. 👏🏾  His delivery is entrancing, and ultimately creates a familiar nostalgic brand of hiphop that also comes coated in a new-age feel of r&b and it is for this very reason, that it seems fitting he’s been nominated for best new artist at the cafe ngoma awards, with this track offering up a clear justification as to why he’s earned the nomination but also deserves to win it. 🌟
