Remember when we all got ridiculously excited at the start of lockdown about the great art which would come into fruition? Well, here it is, in the form of Alt Hip Hop artist Shareef’s single Reggiano.
Reggiano is just one of the soulfully entrancing, experimentally invigorating singles featured on their 2020 album “Assorted Gelato: The Dream of Sleepy Nelson”. From that endearingly creative title, you can get a good idea of the playful ingenuity which will greet you if you hit play on Reggiano. The soulfully eccentric take on Hip Hop which uses grooving Jazzy elements of Neo-Soul only gets better with repeat attention.
You can check out Reggiano along with the rest of Shareef’s ground-breakingly soulful album via Spotify.
