Hailing from South London, Kir Rabu's ambient and downtempo hip-hop vibes are enough to place listeners into a trance. Sign of Leo, the artist's latest release, is filled with beautiful soundscapes and dreamy vocals; highlighting the major talent flowing from this UK vocalist, rapper, and songwriter.
We always love artists who are creating truly unique music within their genres and Kir Rabu is a perfect example. While its apparent this Londoner has the skill to create the same-old sounding hip-hop as his peers, he's instead breaking boundaries and creating some seriously fresh beats. The budding singer-songwriter raps over ambient soundscapes of floating pads, smooth electric piano riffs, and lowkey drum grooves - only interrupting his flow to introduce a chorus filled with chilled out, melodic vocals. Adding in a wealth of delay, lovely reverb, and interesting sound effects, all elements of Kir Rabu's Sign of Leo equate to a seriously impressive modern-day cross between soul and hip-hop.
