An emcee/producer/DJ based in the Bay Area, Kero One has been grinding for a decade now, and finally drops his full-length debut, Windmills of the Soul. Oozing dusty drum breaks, mellow loops, and live instrumentation aplenty-Fender Rhodes, sax, and guitar are all present-Windmills is grown-man hip-hop for all the golden-era cats. Lyrically, he delivers compelling and relatable tales of real-life situations, whether dealing with the ladies (“Tempted”), hectic situations (“In a Dream”), or his love of vinyl (“Keep It Alive!”). With high-profile collaborations on deck and a successful Japanese tour under his belt, look for Kero to start making big moves.
