Esso delivers an ode to noughties hip-hop on ‘Nikes’

West London’s Esso is well known for attacking a range of styles, from Brazilian baile-funk to cloud rap.

We’ve been working with the rapper, singer and producer via our DMY Artists, and last year he dropped ‘Exquisite‘, a genre-less slice of shimmering rap.

Esso is one of those artists who does everything himself: vocalling and producing, his latest single ‘Nikes’ is no exception, finding him drop some ’90s/early 00s hip-hop sounds with an ultra-smooth R&B vocal and chopped-up strings.

On the intro and outro, DJ Rico Mars toasts the track, making for something you might have requested on the music video channel back in the days of old.
