Mixing harsh electronica with hip-hop infused beats is the domain of South Carolina born and bred artist and producer, M3staken.
Defying the neatly categorised boxes of genres is a difficult thing to do, but M3staken somehow succeeds in doing this by constantly maintaining an experimental aesthetic to his work.
The first album in his ‘trilogy’ entitled Apex, saw him delve into the world of classical piano, juxtaposing it with his trademark beats, but since then, he has focused his skills on crafting an ambient, artistically intriguing style of music.
M3staken has noted that out of the three records in his trilogy, Rain is the one that means the most to him due to its conclusiveness nature of his prolific work rate. He also commented that Rain is ‘loosely connected to my two previous works and it is primarily a collection of my personal favourite songs’.
