After I first covered his GSPL EP for our “Top 50 Chicago Projects of 2017” list, Phoelix has remained one of my personal favorite artists out of the city. His hypnotic sound, paired with personal lyricism and contagious vocals, has always struck me as something special, and today, the rising talent proves this fact further with his latest single, “Drip”. At face value, this track acts as the perfect introduction to Phoelix in every way. His productions skills prove their versatility in the several switches of pace seen in this song, and with the contrast between free-moving, looming vocals and tightly-wound flows that also come across so effortlessly in “Drip”, it goes without saying that Phoelix’s style is in every way, uncontested. The true talent that his music packs into the small snapshots of life that make up each song is highly impressive, and considering the immense skill that Phoelix possesses, I don’t doubt that 2018 is going to be a huge year for him. If you weren’t hip already, be sure to show some love to this Chicago native and listen to “Drip” below.
