From the moment the smooth stylings of Gianni Amawo’s minimal post-trap production blend with the ethereal melodic and melismatic vocal expressions of Nicholas Hunt, one is transported to a world one in its own. In this smooth, but poignant new school R&B-styled record, we see a different side of Nic from the previous release off his upcoming EP, The Echelon.
With “Vagabond,” Nic showcases his musical, emotional and vocal versatility. If the different facets expressed in these two singles is any indicator of what’s to come, one can bet that 2014/2015 will be an era when Nicholas Hunt’s audio domination of the Brooklyn independent hip hop scene will reign supreme.
The Only Constant Is Change is set to drop in early October.
