There comes a time in everyone’s life when revisiting your musical comfort-zone for the umpteenth time just doesn’t cut it anymore. Maybe you’re an avid fan of Pop music who loves every familiar power chord progression and every hey-oh chorus. Eventually, a time will come when you just get tired of listening to the same repetitive songwriting and uninventive melodies over and over again.
This is when you need to step outside of the familiar and leave that musical comfort-zone behind. You simply need to explore new music; your old collection is full of tunes you’ve heard far too many times. When this happens, an artist you should turn to is the true musical trailblazer and undeniable innovator, Klef Mikaydo.
Klef Mikaydo has effectively combined his wide-spanning musical tastes and influences into a giant beaker — and, much like a mad scientist — has shaken ferociously until what has emerged is undefinable. We have had the pleasure of covering this artist in a previous feature. Klef Mikaydo’s sound can best be described as an an infectious blend of throw-back, yet emotive sound. With his brilliant fusion of various genres and styles, (as well as his evident refusal to operate within any pre-conceived boundaries or industry standards); Klef Mikaydo proves once again with new Single “Purple Clouds” that his rise to notoriety is far from slowing down.
In “Purple Clouds”, Klef’s remarkable versatility is on full display. The track features a unique array of accompanying instrumentation, creative sequencing, thought-provoking lyrics, and clever songwriting. His alluring style is designed to draw you into an intimate and self-reflective sonic journey. Light up and enjoy the ride!
Klef Mikaydo has already built a prestigious resume, having recieved mass acclaim for his 2017 Single “Last Night”. Due to these early successes, Klef Mikaydo has become a hot artist to cover in nearly every recognizable indie publication on the net. With countless music features under his belt (each of which given stellar reviews of music within the last year), this artist shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
We stand by what we said before, one of Klef Mikaydo’s most distinguishing qualities is his ability to craft infectious rhymes and frame unforgettable hooks. Each thoughtful lyrical phrasing and clever word jumbling carries a hidden punch and remarkable depth that is not often found in newer indie releases. While other notorious Hip Hop artists are tasked with focusing the listener by removing all musical distraction with pure spoken word records to show off their genius; Klef Mikaydo is able to effortlessly blend sophistication and flow with masterfully crafted sonic soundscapes. Add some infectious beats and brilliant song sequencing and structuring to the mix, and you have an irresistible fusion of catchy music oozing with substance.
While Klef Mikaydo certainly pays homage to the great hip-hop standards; he frequently veers away the genre’s increasingly tired tendencies, making the listening experience feel entirely new and unpredictable.
Klef Mikaydo is a remarkable artist and is definitely a breath of fresh air within a tired industry that has become overly saturated with copycat artists whose sole goal is to cash in on an increasingly uninventive formula. “Purple Clouds” is a MUST LISTEN!
