Introducing Hip – Hop/Rap artist Akheim Allen from North London (Edmonton), he has already worked with the likes of Avelino & Dave East as well as written alongside Kojey Radical and Maleek Berry and is blossoming into a talented musician, who can articulate his words in a way you can rock your head to. – Something we can all agree is essential when wanting to feel a vibe.
Playing his new track, it feels like to me his sound takes me back to New York, you know that American new Hip-Hop sound? That’s what I’m picking up and there isn’t enough of it in the UK, which means it’s a great avenue for him to take and create his own lane. Working with Earbuds (Slowthai, Daniel OG), Akheim already has a head start working with some great people who has put him in the right direction.
The ‘WAVS DNT DIE’ track itself contains a slow beat which has a high pitch instrument in the background. The flow of Akheim remains consistent throughout the track, which enables you to hear his clear lyricism and the different tones in his voice – an element which strings you along till the end of the song. The visuals also focus on Akheim, the prime subject of the video, throughout different scenes you can see close ups of him, passionately reciting his verses, to taking you on a cruise in a car and chilling around the streets of North London, which I’m sure encompass the story of his journey into who he has become.
This is Akheim Allen’s first single, from what we can see online and at the attention this has massed, it appears to be quite successful so far. Hopefully this is the start of something exciting for Allen as he continues his journey. You can follow him on the socials below.
