Eliy Orcko should definitely be given his flowers for his incredible beat selection (yes, this is a skill). Even though I'm not always intrigued by each single he releases, I do find myself loving the beats he rhymes over.

His latest release "Carried Away" is adorned with an emotive edge thanks to the fierce guitars. This is surprisingly complimented by Eliy's singing. - it's not perfect but it possesses the kind of soul that reminds us of early blues music. My favorite part is certainly when he unleashes a 32-bar verse where you can hear the frustration and pain spilling out of his voice, making his verse all the more relatable.
