Coming from the same circle as many of my other favorite Chicago artists, like Noname, Ravyn Lenae, Smino, Saba and more, Phoelix is carving out a pocket of his own in the Chicago music scene. You can find "Drip" on his debut album Tempo, which serves as a follow up to his debut EP GSPL that he dropped in July last year.
On Tempo Phoelix showcases how versatile of an artist and producer he is, with songs ranging from trap, hip-hop, R&B, and everything in between. The melodies he created on this album are so catchy and smooth, and "Drip" is a great example of this skill of his.
The hook on drip is hypnotically catchy and will leave you saying "drip, drip drop" all day. But it's also the production and arrangement of this record that makes it so catchy, between the progression of the keys and the bump of the bass, there's no getting this song out of your head.
Phoelix brings the perfect late-night vibes on his Tempo project, from the way he layers his vocals to his different textured sounds, it'll definitely have you wanting more.
I've had the pleasure of catching him live by consequence of his playing in the band of Noname and Ravyn Lenae, but a headlining Phoelix concert, where he steps out from behind the keys, is something I'm definitely on the lookout for.
