Indonesian Hip Hop artist Lil Bro dropped their third track “MERCY” in January 2020 and the airwaves became an infinitely better place for it.
With Eastern melodies weaved into the mix, MERCY is a refreshing change from the monocultural Hip Hop which dominates the genre. Throughout the track, there’s plenty of evolutions both in terms of the instrumentals and Lil Bro’s vocal delivery which switch from RnB-style vocals to convictive Rap versing. The production on the Lo-Fi demo may be a little rough. But the energy, soul, and passion projected into MERCY remained palpable from the first verse to the last.
We’ve instantly warmed to Lil Bro’s latest mix. And if you appreciate good vibes in your contemporary EDM Hip Hop, we’re fairly sure you’ll share our viscerally warm reaction.
