NotFamous – Shine/LA


Breathtakingly mellow vibes come from the NotFamous duo.

Now and again artists come along that truly take your breath away and make you take a step back. NotFamous are a perfect example of this. Delivering perfectly effortless mellow and understated hiphop.

A double review from the NotFamous hiphop duo, two singles – Shine & LA. Both tracks taken from their debut album – Dopamine Addict which is out now.

Shine come fully loaded with a hybrid of laid back production and fierce lyricism. Yet it still manages to sound like a big hiphop banger without loosing any appeal or authenticity. A playful hook of ‘Im Not Interested In Nothing You Say’ is the lynch pin for a flawless banger from this new duo.

LA follows a similar pattern of a laid back mellow production, complimented by effortless lyricism. A deeper subject matter of love and appreciation which is the theme through out this track is covered with ease. Late night vibes that will have you smiling and spacing out all at the same time.

 We live in a world of fast easy to digest music and thats great. Now and again though you need something a little deeper a little bit more meaningful a little bit more soul touching. NotFamous are a square peg in a round holed industry which far from being bad, its in fact a beautiful thing. They stand out for all the right reasons and its beautiful that we still have music of this calibre in 2017.

Grown folks music at its finest. I can honestly say this review has taken far longer than it should have to write up. As i kept stopping to reply Shine & LA and to digest these soul touching singles.
