If N.VS’ First Song off of his forthcoming Focus EP is telling of what’s to come, then we are all in for a treat come early June 2012. The visuals are provided by Artistic Outlet Films and are perfectly matched to the vibe and content of First Song. The track is made up of a soothing loop with minimalistic drums sprinkled throughout, providing the perfect soundscape for a heartfelt rant displaying much with an economic use of words. Based on a line embedded in the rant, I gather that N.VS not only delivers on the mic, he is also responsible for the production of the track, as well as the rest of the tracks on his EP. N.VS captures his audience and the notion that he is trying to make more than just music, he is trying to make an impact on his listeners. He makes it clear that this first release is making a statement about the album, but more importantly, also about who he is. You would do well to listen.
N.VS is also a member of a hip hop collective, Fangtshida, so whether individually or corporately, keep your eyes and ears peeled for what he is up to this year!
Peace and Love,
