Kansas City based artist Namesake. has had a pretty busy year so far trying to make a name for himself as a (promising) producer. Indeed, the young artist took on production duties on pinkcaravan!’s impeccable debut EP, “a very sad happy birthday” (do yourself a huge favour by getting acquainted with the rising St. Louis rapper ASAP!)
Namesake.’s productions are pretty bright, colorful, and bubbly; they stimulate your imagination, sending you right into a cartoon-style world.
Eight months after the release of pinkcaravan!’s EP, Namesake. is now stepping into the spotlight accompanied by his frequent collaborator and rapper Sam Stan. His debut single, “Vroom Vroom” is a chill yet bouncy track with a great palette of playful, quasi-cinematic sounds. Sonically, the trio is truly in perfect symbiosis on this track. The song begins with an infectious hook and verse softly delivered by pinkcaravan! ; Sam Stan coming in slightly after, laying some nice bars over the bass heavy beat.Listen to “Vroom Vroom” below. There is a feel-good vibe to the song that will make you hit the replay button over and over again.
Namesake. is going on tour with pinkcaravan! at the end of the month. They are opening for R&B artist Xavier Omär and will be at The Great Hall on November 29th!
