theMIND – “Summer Camp”

TheMIND adds an otherworldly sound to the Chicago scene. His complex production style lifts his poetic singing style to another dimension. His lyrics are on point, and his singing voice even reminds me of Frank Ocean at times, but his beats are what bring his sound together. He did study at Colombia.

I love the artist’s creativity and experimentation on Summer Camp. From his complex lyrics to the carefully placed vocal samples, unorthodox drum patterns, addicting clicks and beeps, impossibly jazzy synths and environmentally friendly sound effects, theMIND is a genius for this project. Those are some critical features too. Get you some education from the young king.

Peep the visual game too. Here’s “Pale Rose” :
