Up and coming NYC-born, Florida-based hip hop artist YsL Milli has taken his sound in a darker direction with the release of his single, Been Here Before, taken from his upcoming 2022 album, Reach the Stars.
From a chilling and ethereal prelude, a dark trappy track transpires and allows YsL Milli’s vocals to bleed into the experimental downtempo instrumentals that will leave you hooked through the ingenuity in the spatial effect and the depth of the lyrics that do plenty more than just scratch at the surface.
It is tracks like Been Here Before that practically make the concept of genres redundant. His constraint-less expressionist style utilises a myriad of genres to tune into the pensive tone of the release that explores the frustration of always finding yourself back at the starting point or even further back.
