Please insert ‘perfection’.
British Nigerian alternative artist, AYLØ, serves uber smooth sounds in his newest mixtape, . Refreshing and sultry, Aylø features a commendable list of quirky up coming artists who further add to the overall ambience of his tracks. Versatile as well as soothing, the fluidity of AYLØ’s mixtape makes for a vibe that is evident of multiple influences. And it works. Flawlessly too.
His second track Whoa! features singer Amaarae, whose mesmerizing voice helps create a rich soulful sound rather comparable to the likes of R&B/ soul artists like Solange or even IAMDDB.
133 on the other hand gives off more of a hip hop/ rap style similar to that of Odd Future’s very own, Tyler the Creator. To wrap it up, he throws in Afro-fusion beats which add to the ingenuity of his sound. Clearly, AYLØ has mastered his craft; and his mixtape is definitely worth the listen.
