chikondi – “The Zoom Reprise”


“The Zoom Reprise” is a soulful, melodic track from chikondi. The production throughout is notably captivating, reminding of Tyler, the Creator’s recent work, with some of The Avalanches’ sample-laden charm to boot. The vocals’ emergence follows a soaring title-referencing intro, setting in motion a hooky sequence with a hip-hop flow amidst the stellar “I like to fly away,” vocal accompaniment. A chilled-out vocal mix-up around 02:30 follows a lush guitar entry, helping the track remain consistently engrossing from start to finish. “The Zoom Reprise” thoroughly impresses from chikondi.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Hip-Hop.
