If you know about independent artists and hip-hop, then you already know of NËK. If you don’t, then let me introduce to you the US’ most influential chillwave rapper
NËK is a US-based artist. He creates beats that are soothing and relaxing, but still interesting enough to keep you engaged. His EP Mental Activity is full of chillwave and lo-fi hip-hop beats to help you unwind after a long day.
As Mental Activity shows more signs of his maturation as an artist, transitioning into a more seasoned sound, this album serves as a warm-up following Misti’s Blues and Spirit Flow, which covered hard topics.
You can listen to our full playlist which contains the artist’s music, and know more about his work by scrolling down the page.
NËK has created a sound that’s, at its core, harmony, strumming, hip-hop, and a touch of blues. The soundtrack of the EP has the perfect balance between being calm and upbeat, and as a result, is both suitable as background music for the construction of a night club, and as result of that, it is also suitable for your daily commute; it is both calming and motivating at the same time.
This EP contains a variety of songs that are beautiful and catchy at the same time. There is no doubt that these songs are suitable for any situation you can think of. No matter what you are doing, whether you are studying or hanging out with your friends, you will always be able to hear these songs in your head day in and day out, so there is no way to avoid them forever.
It’s kind of like a combination of tuff love and nurturing love all rolled into one. The audience is given something to contemplate and then you follow that up with something that will allow their minds to be freed.
Nevertheless, at the same time, there is something introspective that will make their minds wonder. As a transition to what has come after that release, Mental Activity serves as an introduction to what is to follow.
