One of my favourite MC & producer Oddisee is back with a new single and the announcement of his upcoming album The Iceberg (scheduled for Feb 24th via Mello Music Group). His previous release The Good Fight (2015) was an absolute must-hear whether you care about hip hop or not. It was just exceptionally good music!

Today's highlight - "Things" is one of the most powerful tracks I've heard in a long time. The instrumental has a really dope groove to it, I wouldn't necessarily really use the word disco here, this track will move your body. Also, the lyric part - the dude is absolute destruction when it comes to text writing. Very personal and charging!

I like a quote off Mellow Music's description which I think perfectly explains what The Iceberg will be about - "a plea for humanity to dig deeper in search of understanding and common ground".

So I'm holding onto pressure like it's all mine, that ain't sweat it's just the way I keep the floor shined Everybody queued up in the long grind, thinking that we next in the short line

In addition, Oddisee will be touring across EU and US next year, so check his dates on his artist profile and if you're in/around any of those cities - treat yourself some unique music experience.
