Kevin Abstract ft. Lontalius - SAVE

Posted 2 years ago
Producer:
Romil
Album:
Untitled (TBD)

A 17-year old rap buzzmaker who calls A-Town home, Kevin Abstract makes his first foray into The DJBooth with SAVE, a promotional single premiered earlier this week via Pigeons and Planes. On this hazy, downtempo jam, Romil‘s muted guitar noise and languid rhythm section set the stage for introspective bars from the Alive Since Forever crew member. Though the disconnected nature of Kevin’s autobiographical recollections (“I was 15 when I realized the damage / I was 16 when I moved to Atlanta”) makes his rhymes feel a little, well, abstract, the cut’s enigmatic vibe doesn’t detract from the emotional impact of lines like, ”You think it’s wrong for me to die? I’ve been dead my whole life.Lontalius‘s spectral guest vocals heighten the melancholy mood. Details have yet to be announced on the project to which SAVE will be attached, but we in the Booth will keep you posted as further information emerges.
