Nekaybaaw & Ka Sekhem, two artists delivering a fresh musical perspective, a raw yet ethereal opus designed to give their brand of social commentary the perfect audible landscape in order to be truly felt. A progressive fusion of various musical elements well balanced with socially conscious subject matter, additive bass grooves, intelligent song writing, Nekaybaaw & Ka Sekhem’s album ” Of Unknown Origin” can be likened to the sounds of Madlib, Georgia Anne Muldrow, DJ Cam, Flying Lotus, Fat Jon, J. Dilla and others. Although there was little discussion in regards to subject matter for the album, given both reside in different areas, each artist delivers their message as if carefully planned. Some things are divine and can not be explained only felt!
Song titles such as “Be Like U (You)” showcase the divine nature of two musical souls coming together to spread their message of originality & responsibility. The mission to create an uplifting blend of hip hop or “electronic boom bap” is emphasized on such songs as “Nightvisions” and “For the Yeah”. Each song highlights another step towards spreading love across the planet, teaching the youth how to get messages across without disrespecting self. Done in the course of thirty minutes.
In retrospect, “Of Unknown Origin”, a promising debut collection of progressive and diverse compositions sure to catch the ears of those hip hop enthusiasts that love on the edge.
