There are so many things being an all rounding artist implies and entails including the fact that knowing just the right dose of necessary elements to put into a record is never a far-reaching idea. We’ve witnessed this in many industry all-rounders including Solange who doubles as a Content Creator and Musician. The quality of her lyricism is never subpar and experiences an appreciation as she grows. The same can be said for Nigerian Producer meets Writer meets Photographer, Yinoluu, whose experience garnered from coining experimental genres through music production and writing are the unique flavors that make his just-released six-track body of work, Lost Files, stand out, impress and elevate among other descriptions.
Opening with its earlier released lead single, Righteous on which Rapper, Mafeni is filled with sobering truths that seem to be the result of an arduous introspective session, they address pressing personal issues as relatable as their come-up stories. Adopting a captivating and movement inducing one two-step flow, Mafeni digs into his narrative casually yet with spunky honesty and confidence evidenced in the way he reminds us that despite his shadowy presence, he’s not one to be toyed with.
Yinoluu quickly moves on to other dimensions, creating the perfect canvasses for his impressive list of features to paint their charming, engaging narratives on.
Dexterically and with abundant stamina, he switches between and with characters including Amaarae’s grown and sexy persona on Birthday, Mafeni and BarelyAnyHook’s confidence-inducing charisma on Hummingbird, among others, adapting sonic and lyrical patterns to suit each persona and story and also, in a bid to ensure his listeners completely take to the multidimensional plot of the genre transcendent project.
