Last Daze of Summer In one word: ‘Chilled’
Wanted to say ‘chilled- vibes’ but obviously its not one word! Real feel good music, perfect for the autum season.
Favourite Song: (Track 3) Nuh Let Go
Has a little Caribbean vibe to it ( hence the title) the beat is perfect for a suttle Waist Whine. Perfect for chillin indoors!
Favourite Lyric: N/A
As he is not a rapper; I didn’t think it would be necessary to include.
‘Kontrol’ Singer Maleek Berry , graces us with the perfect soundtrack for the coming winter with his ‘Last Daze of Summer’ EP.
The 6 track tape is an infusion of Afro beats, pop like lyrical style and Uk culture. The British born, Maleek Berry uses his London upbringing and African heritage to create this master piece.
The first track on the EP, ‘Kontrol’, really encapsulates the whole Afro pop genre. It’s upbeat and smooth energy gives off a dancing along atmosphere. The song has already proved very popular, gaining loads of national radio play.
‘Let Me Know‘ and ‘Nuh Let Go’ (tracks 2 and 3) are a great songs to vibe to and both have a distinct feel good factor.
Track 4 ‘Lost In The World‘ slows the tape down a little with a slow paced beat similar to Track 5. ‘Flexin‘ has a nice chilled ‘head bopping’ vibe, definitely suitable from the frosty winter nights.
The sixth and final track of Maleek Berry extended play features UK artist Geko in ‘Eko Miami’. Translated from the Nigerian Yourba Language as ‘Let’s Go Miami’, it’s the perfect finish to the tape. A fun and pop infused production creates the perfect ‘end of summer’ anthem.
The Afro-pop artist has many connections with well respected artists within the music industry internationally. He has collaborated with the likes of Sneakbo , Geko and Mazi Chuks and produced for the likes of Wande Coal, Wale, Fuse ODG and Wizkid to name a few. As one of the home producers from Star Boy records he and Wizkid are a dynamic duo making numerous songs together, ‘The Matter’, ‘Love You’ and ‘Feel Me’ to name a few.
Fans have taken to twitter to express their positive opinions of the EP.
Last Daze of summer, is a project seen from no other, produced and written by Maleek Berry himself. Perfectly timed and creatively sculptured, Last Daze of Summer is just the beginning for the talented producer and artist.
I hope to see more collaborations with UK Artists such as Tinie Tempah, EugiOffical and MrEazi which could just change the game in the UK. With such talent, if Berry can show his diversity within his music producing songs out of the afrobeat genre, this is only begining of his reign!
