London-based rapper JM7 drops a six-track EP titled Mojo, a smooth, advanced dose of talent that establish him as a valuable commodity.
Assured in its vision and purpose, Mojo takes sixteen minutes to introduce JM7 to new ears. Whatâ€™s on display is refreshing music, indulging in soundscapes of cloud rap and alternative hip hop that is blissfully mellow. Production is handled by Yogic Beats, Adamdiini, Charlie P, Ashton McCreight, Will B and Marow, working in tandem to tie the knots between the six tunes.
Highlights include â€œTell Meâ€, grabbing elements of funk and dance as JM7 lays both rapped and sung vocals, and â€œYou Dey Crazeâ€, a fleshed track with memorable verses and a quotable hook. JM7 sings on further cuts, proving he can hold a melody just as well as he can command a sixteen.
In June 2022, JM7 contested in The Block Reportâ€™s open mic competition, receiving plaudits from the live crowd and UK journalists. He emerged as the most ready-made artist out the line-up, a conclusion thatâ€™s proven by the quality and versatility shown on Mojo.
Speaking on the project on his Instagram, JM7 stated: â€œIâ€™ve always valued lyrics and pride myself on being able to rap at a high level. Song creation, structure and melodies are things Iâ€™ve had to develop over time. This EP is one of my musical happy places which lies somewhere between lyrics & vibes, words & song and smoothness & skill.â€
Mojo shows exactly why the UK must take heed of JM7. The talent is there, and the trajectory is set.
