Recently, it seems like every new rapper or EDM artist we meet describes themselves similarly. It usually goes something like, “I want to be the next Kanye/Drake/Lamar/Weekend…” This sentiment is then often uncomfortably showcased in their music as a shameless imitation of their heroes. While it is completely natural to become inspired by your industry forerunners, but you must stray away from riding on their coattails by replicating their distinct sound and style.
This is precisely what Suelo naturally does so well. Upon discovering this artist, we were immediately struck by what may be his strongest asset: his courage to be entirely unapologetic in his assertion of his own unique identity.
Each track on his newest EP “Perception” oozes honesty, musical ambition, and fearless creativity. Not only are they polished and meticulously crafted, but it is sequenced to perfection, leaving the listener wanting more. This artist is definitely a trend-setter and sets an unbelievably high standard for indie Hip Hop/Rap artists hoping to break through in the scene.
Suelo is definitely one of those increasingly rare transcendent artists that doesn’t abide by the typical genre limitations and standards. Regardless of your specific musical tastes, regardless of any bias or animosity that you may have against the hip-hop or EDM genres; the sheer uniqueness and thoughtfulness of Suelo’s “Perception” EP will inspire and ignite applause and appreciation out of even the most reluctant listeners.
