Quick Thoughts: Last Friday, emerging artists DAM3, Kemkooley, and Young God Blow dropped a brand new track titled, “Summer ’16.” It’s a catchy track that sees each artist put forth a great performance – their sound is cohesive and their chemistry is tangible. They’ve already released few successful singles this year, “SLIDE,” “ENERGY,” and “Nobody” are just a few of them. All three artists are signed to up and coming Houston-based label, MONARCH3 Records, and they clearly have a promising roster of developing acts.
Over atmospheric production, “Summer ‘16” provides listeners with a sense of nostalgia as they look back fondly on simpler summer days. Following Young God Blow’s hook, DAM3 enters the picture with addictive melodies that serve as a perfect first verse. Kemkooley ties everything together with his verse, adding a forward-looking perspective that balances perfectly with the nostalgic track. Be on the lookout for the three talented artists as they continue to drop new music and grow their catalogs. Stream on Spotify:
