On To Better Things – [Adé Hakim]
Adé Hakim, or Sixpress, as some may know him, is the kind of artist whom you can’t listen to just once. Lyrically, he’s multi-layered and introspective, while sonically, his dusty instrumentals and slow-burning samples explore worlds of their own creation, all without compromising the themes of quality or honesty within Hakim’s catalog. Today, the rising talent puts this all on display with his latest project, On To Better Things. Admittedly, we’re a few weeks late on this release, but nevertheless, it’s worthy of attention, as Hakim’s soulful presence on the mic makes for a captivating project in all 34 minutes of its duration. On To Better Things comes to terms with the realities of life, and it presents these lessons learned in an engaging sonic atmosphere, allowing for listeners of all different interests to enjoy a project of such unrivaled authenticity. Alongside features from Cleo Reed, King Carter, Pink Siifu, MIKE, Alphonse, and Jodi, this project finds Adé Hakim at home in both sound and delivery, so be sure to show some love and stream the project below.
