Kevin Paul – “Braveheart” (prod. derrickpannther)
“Braveheart” is an impressive new track from Kevin Paul, an Atlanta-based artist who excels with a precise and emotive flow alongside a smooth, jazzy beat. The production, courtesy of derrickpannther, aligns cohesively with the vocals, which alternate from intense verses and a nonchalant during the hook — a section that reminds fondly of Gorillaz / Damon Albarn. A lounge-y key presence serves as a nice accompaniment to the verses past the two-minute mark, with rhythms fading in the track’s final moments to emphasize the powerful vocal performance. “Braveheart” is an engrossing, confident success from Kevin Paul.
“Braveheart” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of June 2019’ Spotify playlist.
The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Indie Hip-Hop and Rap.
