Zeke Smyth – Secrets, featuring Lando Strand; tropic urban pop perfection.

Cleveland, Ohio aural experimentalist, Zeke Smyth, pulls his inspiration from a diverse pool of pop, rock, hip hop and soul; he doesn’t break boundaries; he refuses to acknowledge their existence when orchestrating his pop-rap hits.

His latest single, Secrets, featuring Lando Strand, is tropic pop perfection. The catchy vocal melodies never allow your attention to falter while the sticky with soul track unfolds. Vibes don’t get much higher than Secrets which explores verbal intimacy through sentimental lyrics and up-vibe tranquil 808s that will leave you hooked on Zeke’s sound.

Secrets is now available to stream on Spotify.

YeaaDoee goes back to the old school in his latest hip hop single, ‘InMyCity’.

Old school hip hop fans looking to inject their playlists with fresh vibes won’t want to pass by on Cleveland, US-hailing up and coming artist YeaaDoee’s latest feat of gangster hip hop, InMyCity.

With Snoop Dogg-style hazy stoner grooves cut into the pulsating trap beats, YeaaDoee constructed the perfect platform for his playful yet grimy rap bars that introduce you to the grit in his home town. At the risk of sounding hyperbolic, InMyCity is a mesmerising release. It hits you with OG nostalgia while simultaneously registering as pioneering through the flawlessly atmospheric production.

InMyCity released on May 30th; you can check it out for yourselves via YouTube.
