Stumbled across this artist on YouTube. Loved the rhythms! Looking forward to getting more albums (and maybe some vinyls). If you are a fan of chill hop, or lo-fi, or jazzy RnB - check this out!
Favorite track: Align [Feat. Wayne Snow].
Well, what to say. Skeme does go all city. It meanders across the urban landscape from serene smooth tarmac and well pruned trees to a funked up street where colorful minimalism is the aesthetic. its that kinda vibe. Never a dull moment. As Arthur would say "listen to the rhythm of the street"
Favorite track: Skeme Goes All City.
