In a fresh compilation of dark, psychedelic tones, Russian rapper Michael South has today dropped his latest Album ‘Please Stand by’. Taking on the urban scene with a unique and novel sound, Michael South has worked his 8-piece album to hip-hop perfection, interlacing an alternative style with an unsullied rap flow.
As the feature track from the Album; ‘Aesthetics’ gives us a fresh, opaque tonality, bridging together a smooth rendition of sensitive lyrics and heavy beats.
Michael South incorporates his love for music and song-writing with his passion for rap culture, immersing himself in the Russian and western rap scene, releasing and selling his first set of urban beats back in 2014.
With a dark, cloud-rap style, South represents one of few contemporary hip-hop artists pushing the boundaries on modern rap, growing up listening to artists like Onyx, The WuTang Clan, and Dr Dre, shaping the way to his appreciation for music. Much like today’s stream of popular rap artists such as Kanye, A$AP Mob and Travis Scott, Michael South enlightens us into a new-wave of modern rap music, unafraid to express his true identity through the course of his music.
‘Please Stand by’ characterises a strong and influential record, encompassing an effortlessly relatable collection of hip-hop beats and smooth vocals. Dishing out an edgy, ethereal tone, South’s latest release bridges us through an eerie underpass of alternative rap.
Hitting the streets of modern hip-hop culture, Michael South’s ‘Please Stand by’ is an album to test the competition of today’s urban scene. Giving us something distinctively individual, Michael South is a rapper that peaks above the modern threshold, creating a unique sound to battle up against an otherwise oversaturated hip-hop scene.
Already ahead of the game, and with more fresh music to be heard throughout 2018, Michael South’s newest release is the first of many grand things to come from the Russian rap prodigy.
