A haunting beat and captivating flow are consistent throughout “JUNE,” the latest from StayLitG. “It was made when I first moved to LA, a huge turning point in my life,” StayLitG says. “I always try to turn nothings into somethings, that’s what this is about.” Wordless backing vocals and creeping strings assemble alongside twinkling keys, setting up a climactic and atmospheric beat. Hip-hop percussion signals a more modern feel as the vocals appear; the bass drum emergence aligns enjoyably the murkier vocal disposition. “JUNE” is a quality showing from StayLitG.
“JUNE” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of September 2020’ Spotify playlist.
The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Hip-Hop.
