MNEK - Every Little Word

4/24/2014 Tunes For Loons 0 Comments

This 18 yr old from South London has been flitting around the electro-pop world for some time now working with artists like Disclosure, Gorgon City, Rudimental, and Duke Dumont.  Obvi he has musical chops with a rap sheet like that, but this break out single will silence any doubts. The song speaks for itself with a cool late 80s/early 90s pop feel and of course MNEK's sultry vocals to top it off. Perhaps, the repetition of "Do you F*CK to this shit??" in the background is a bit much- but like also I can dig it, I guess? As if the song weren't enough, MNEK has also released a video which seems to be a perfect representation of both this track and his general artisitc vision.** SPOILER ALERT: there is a Rick Ross impersonator on a toilet, a gospel choir, and MNEK sporting some serious throwback duds a la the Fresh Prince era. PLUS, he fills us in on how exactly to pronounce his name - EM EN EE KAY (thx dude I was really struggling). In sum, I would be willing to bet this guy does some pretty cool shit in the future. I mean have you seen his haircut?

**Unfortunately, the video is unavailable on Vevo but you can watch it on BuzzFeed right hurr. http://www.buzzfeed.com/naomizeichner/mnek-every-little-word-video
