Music nerds come in all shapes and sizes. But one thing that’s consistent is our overwhelming desire to discover new talent that makes our heads explode. Take, for instance, MIKOS DA GAWD out of San Francisco. A squad email comes through, I click the link and my jaw instantly drops. This dude is SERIOUS and the stunning nature of his hip-hop laced productions has me staying plenty warm in my currently freezing cold nook of the world. Incredible lush soundscapes with rugged neck breaking percussion is his steeze and it’s so right up my alley. He’s dropped a small handful of cuts over the last few days including a banger of a remix of Eve and tasty collaboration with everyone’s current favorite, Mr. Carmack. MIKOS DA GAWD, consider yourself officially on this radar.
