A few months ago we wrote about Montreal’s buzzing underground scene. One of those artists was up and coming rapper Neko. He’s back with a new project, this time with two songs for a compilation project from Club Nuage, a soundwave collective from Quebec.
My favorite of the two tracks is “Stains” produced by shyguy. The beat is wavy and melodic and Neko shows a new style I haven’t heard before. Some introspective lyrics, melodic bars, but still the grittiness I love from Neko. Check it out below, rumor is he’ll be making an appearance at SXSW this year. I hope that’s true.
