South London based independent hip-hop artist Ultra_eko, began releasing music in the Summer of 2019, but in that time has demonstrated a varied, eclectic and wholly unique voice within the genre.
‘Kitchen Sink Dramas‘ features six tracks with lyrical content that covers a wide variety of modern day issues and below you can gain a deeper insight into the stand out elements of each of these tracks.
There are a couple of times during the EP where it seems to draw influence from the Bristol indie music scene.
‘The Seventh Day’ delivers heavy bass laden beats, breathtaking orchestral melodies and soulful vocals which deliver powerful lyrics.
‘Six Numbers’ is more of a chilled track, with a simple piano arrangement and stripped back vocals.
‘King of the Wild Things’ seems to cover the topic of mental health through its enigmatic verses.
‘Soul’s Code’ is like a poem but more so, with its deep and emotive message and when combined with the beautiful melody results in the creation of something ground-breaking.
‘Run Away’ entertains us with catchy beats and Ultra_eko’s vocal delivery, the chorus in particular really stands out.
Twisted brings smooth guitar riffs and powerful percussion beats into the mix, which go hand in hand with the vocal performance as this track wraps up the EP.
