Intalekt is an emerging artist straight out of South London. Since the release of his single "Get By" featuring rapper Jay Prince and over 35,000 plays later, we haven’t heard a peep from Intalekt until now.
The 24-year-old artist released his new EP; It Is What It Is (IIWII) yesterday and the words genre pushing don't do it justice.
His 11-track project took much if its inspiration from his younger brother (that's him in the artwork), Intalekt notes: “I want to use this EP as a way to tell others to never lock away your inner child. This will stunt your creativity; break culture. Don’t let life force you to grow up.”
The song we're featuring feels part Lupe Fiasco, part Pete Rock and part Frack Ocean, with the second half of "Innocent Soul" sounding like it could've easily been plucked from Channel Orange.
The press release describes his EP as "a tapestry of live instrumentation embellished with his familiar trippy electronic, soulful sound".
One listen, and I'm sure you'll agree with those words. Stream up top. And take note of the name; Intalekt.
