Nemesis – “INNOV8!”


“INNOV8!” is a hypnotic hip-hop success from Los Angeles-based artist Nemesis. Steady percussion and organ pulses complement a consuming vocal lead, diversifying tone and flow throughout with charismatic cohesion. The old-school hip-hop nostalgia is apparent in the vocal-first and hypnotic beat intertwining, with a more modern shine in the addictive chorus: “Thoughts + Beats = INNOV8! and Grow!” The next verse is particularly entrancing, somewhere between the intro’s laid-back suaveness and the chorus’ melodic immediacy. “INNOV8!” is a riveting success from Nemesis.

This track and others featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of April 2022’ Spotify playlist.
