Numonics
Album:
Never Enough EP

There’s nothing like a brush with death to clue you into how small and insignificant you, and your actions, are in the grand scheme of things. Just ask Numonics, who came up with the chords to EP title track Never Enough while in the hospital, recovering from what he believed at the time to be a potentially fatal heart attack. The final world premiere off the South Floridian beatsmith’s forthcoming, Booth-sponsored street release with emcee Knowledge Medina, this bracing cut finds the underground rhymesayer taking lyrical inspiration from his behind-the-boards partner’s existential crisis. Over Numonics’ moody, rock-informed arrangement, Medina vividly evokes the feeling of helplessness in the face of human finitude: “...to only find you’re slowly dying and won’t get your wishes / Seems like the sh*t you did is just insufficient.” Like a true existentialist, however, he doesn’t despair but rather recommits himself to the grind, resolving to make the most of every second he’s got left. Have the emcee-producer duo succeeded in elevating your mindstate with this dark, yet ultimately uplifting jam? If so, then don’t miss the rest of the atmospheric beats and insightful rhymes to be found on their Never Enough EP, set to hit our mixtape page Feb. 7.
