Hailing from the UK landscapes of Manchester, upcoming and emerging artist Acid Messiah may be fairly new, but he’s already making impressive strides with his distinctively catchy signature sound. Utilizing several old school Rap flavors and cohesively mixing it with today’s modern sensibility, Acid Messiah’s breed of electronically-infused Hip Hop conjures up several innovative and flavorful textures that truly make him a standout of his calibre; drawing influence from several crucial industry heavyweights like Eminem, Mac Miller, A$AP Rocky, Kid Cudi, A Tribe Called Quest, and even implements influences from eclectic lyrical narratives from artists like Cage The Elephant and Tame Impala. Acid Messiah’s raw passion for his craft and insatiable desire to set the bar higher musically has been at the forefront ever since emerging into the market. And this is made especially apparent from his two newest anchor singles “Cheddar Bob” and “Inches”, two colorfully visceral tracks that demonstrate Acid Messiah’s versatility and multifaceted approach along with several angles of his songwriting ability to offer up a charismatic and catchy stylization from start to finish.
“Cheddar Bob” plays out like a character introduction. Serving up an almost 80s-stylistic Hip Hop beat with several instrumental layers, Acid Messiah’s back-and-forth narrative among the tag teaming verses delve into a storytelling method that displays two charismatic characters in the form of a hypnotic flow served up with both old school and modern flavors. This cleverly executed number is the perfect intro into Acid’s eclectic angles of his craft and truly demonstrates that he’s willing to bend the rules and even create new ones when it comes to putting out something raw, original and impressionable. This banger will win you over easily, no matter which era of Hip Hop you consider superior.
Then we have second single “Inches”, a more experimental track with atmospheric R&B flavors and a more subtle yet effective beat structure. This dangerously catchy song definitely resonates with the other single but enhances and continues Acid Messiah’s storyline and even pays dues to those who have a love for the ganja. There are several multilayered textures on this track and you can tell that the production value was very finely tuned. Acid Messiah brings the same charismatic flow to this song but also diligently showcases several new angles of his penmanship as the track plays out. It’s a hypnotic number that demands your undivided attention.
Both singles are part of Acid Messiah’s upcoming mixtape Cookie Jar, slated to drop on all major digital platforms in the coming weeks. If you’re craving something fresh and innovative but still have a love for that classic style that made the genre what it is today, then Acid Messiah will easily become an instant favorite. He’s fairly new but is already making big strides and becoming a vital voice for today’s more modern Hip Hop sensibility. These two debut singles set the bar much higher for today’s upcoming artist realm, and once you take a listen yourself, you’ll see (and hear) exactly why. You can get both tracks now on all major digital platforms. You’ll be glad you did.
