Manchester based producer Mecca:83 aka Rise has been making waves through the underground hip-hop community for a while now. I covered his Life Sketches Vol.3 project he released back in December.
Midnight Radio EP is his most recent output. A short, concise but poignant 7- track project, it features hard-hitting beats, groovy-heavy basslines, soulful samples and a lot of percussive elements that elevate this project musically to sound angelic and ethereal in sound. The keys on this album as a whole are beautifully melodic, and subtle string sections also appear throughout. The Mancunian musician gets help from brothermartino on “Midnight,” Marak on “Grounded” and K, Le Maestro on “Awake.”
Midnight Radio EP is an absolute vibe. As the name itself suggests, it is perfect for a reflective midnight listen. Check out Mecca:83’s new EP below via Bandcamp, and don’t forget to support the project in any way you can! Released on Ninetofive Records.
