Fresh on the Net Features Nikkie McLeod
Afrofutire solo artist, Nikkie McLeod has a powerhouse of a single out, titled "Deep Cry", and Fresh on the Net made it a great addition to their Fresh Faves feature.
Everyone is drawn to this track. The afrofuture sound featuring Nikkie on the steel pan drum evokes a strong emotion that draws people in. Fresh on the Net even said that "Deep Cry" was "one of the most popular tracks with voters and moderators this week."
The tribute to Nikkie's mother is one that also encapsulates the story of Nikkie moving from Trinidad & Tobago to New York when Nikkie was 18. The sounds in the single represent that movement and the deep emotion of loss and empowerment all at the same time.
"Steelpan rhythms form the bones, and periodically new instruments accompany the arrangement, guitars, strings and beautiful harmonies. The resulting sound is unique to my ears and is a complete triumph."
