King Kay recently dropped his eleven track project, called Mr Gatsby, so I decided to take several listens and do a review.
I had a feeling I was going to like Mr Gatsby from the get go because I had heard “Shoreditch Resident” and “D’Angelo” featuring BEV Gang member Nehmy, previously. Also, from listening to the prologue, I was already hooked!
Firstly I did like the overall chilled out aura I was getting from this project, I’m a big Hip-Hop fan, and I was explicitly hearing Hip-Hop influences meandering within some of these tracks. I would also say this is definitely worth the listen if you’re a supporter of UK music but you also like a dash of american influence and a pinch of Neo-Soul.
Mr Gatsby is one of those projects I can’t wait to see performed in the flesh and with a live band (hopefully, fingers crossed). There was a line I distinctly liked from track no. three and I can’t stop repeating it – “The revolution will not be twitterised” – The Revolution.
