Listen: Nicholas Cheung - "I AM" album

I recently came across the work of Nicholas Cheung, who just dropped the short EP titled "I AM" on Cult Classic Records. Though the cover made me think it might be indy rock, I was surprised by a mellow mix of jazzy, contemporary production that walks the line between pop, trap and jazzy hip hop of older times. Some of the tracks sound like they are worthy of BIG KRIT and some sound like Drake instrumentals, while still others sound like the work of Foreign Exchange. The mix can be a bit jarring, but the fully instrumental approach shows his range as a producer and talent for sound. It is a bit of a curveball from what I typically rock to, but the more I listen, the more I like the different directions. Check it out and support an up and coming producer from overseas.
