Who is MOK?  A fresh alternative hip hop band from Brighton!

My first impression of “CUTLOOSE” An incredible hip hop collision of mind bending waves of sound!

My take :  One of the best parts about writing for my own blog is that moment when I receive a song from a new artist or group I have never heard before, and it absolutely blows me away.  From the first moment I pushed play on “CUTLOOSE”, I knew I was experiencing a unique type of music that pushes the boundaries in all the right ways.  By interlocking a melodically fierce female vocal around a classically smooth UK rap flow, MOK is able to create an unpredictably gritty track with a push and pull vibe that keeps me on edge of my seat.  As “CUTLOOSE” seems to drag me along, I easily fade into hypnotic like interludes before giving way to the hand of pounding bass and chaotic drums time and time again. It feels almost like I am caught inside a bad dream, struggling to break free from the emotional ties of normalcy that are holding me down.   Throw in more hard-hitting beats, a bit of soaring electronic whispers and some massive bursts of manically aggressive guitar riffs, and MOK throws down an intriguing new wave rap style of their own screaming out to be heard by the masses.  And I am now definitely listening!

TMH RATING: 8/10 Amazing!

Born in sunny San Diego and raised in central Illinois. I graduated from the University of Illinois @Urbana-Champaign and spent the better part of 10 years in sunny Phoenix Arizona after graduation. I now reside in Savoy IL and I try to make it up to the Chicago music scene as much as I can. Music has always been a part of my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
