Every year brings a brand new class of emcees, who are just waiting to showcase their skills and rap their way into our hearts and ears by years end. 2014’s rookie class has stormed out of the gates, led by the likes of Mike Melinoe; the 21-year-old Booth newcomer makes a strong first impression with Steady Vibe. Setting the mood on this funky, charismatic effort is beat duo Stereo Symphony, who take a heavenly sample and sprinkle it out of a jazzy instrumental, managing to sneak in a fairly cool horn section. While the beat is eclectic and chill the Michigan emcee does all the heavy lifting, imparting an impressive, cascading flow that is razor sharp but still relaxed and fun; the perfect blend of business and pleasure. There is no word on a larger release at this time, but keep it locked to The DJBooth for more from the upstart Melinoe.
