This track is my first taste of Mello Music’s latest signing, Namir Blade, and what an introduction it is. Hailing from Nashville, the MC and producer has spent years dabbling in genres ranging from hip hop to house, while very much cultivating his own sound in the process. Now he is set to release a new album on MMG, with The Head serving as the lead single. Beat changes galore and a flow that switched up so well I had to check it wasn’t a guest feature. The album, Aphelion’s Traveling Circus, is due for release on 18 September. You can stream The Head below.
