Ryan Hawaii – Factory Settings

London-based designer and artist Ryan Hawaii has been an influential figure within the arts scene in the city, and has been contributing his talents on the mic for a few years now, but Factory Settings, his new mixtape, feels like his most complete work to date.

9 tracks and 21 minutes in length, the project doesn’t overstay its welcome, bringing energy from the opening track until the closer. Produced by hinh, Loko Los, styn, Tony Bontana and O.PAL, the album features some heavy and punchy trap and drill beats, as Ryan Hawaii’s blunt and straight-forward lyricism makes for a fun listen. Features Tempa T on “Balance”, Benji Ceez on “SNM” and Kruz Leone on “LIKE I’M SOSA” bring their unique flows and animate the project further, while Ryan Hawaii is able to hold his own, speaking on his growth over the years and the struggles he had to deal with both as a designer and musician. It’s an inspiring listen and one that further cements him as one of the leading voices in the underground hip-hop scene.
