Michael Nhat

Michael NhatAn underground genre-blending artist who is really pushing the envelop. Rap, spoken word that sounds like Old Dirty Bastard aboard the Double Duch Bus. “Clocks and Monsters” touches upon many life issues, and also breaks into a slightly “singy” hook for the chorus. This track tastes like a combination of several obscure 90’s tracks like “Mr. Wendel” and “88 Lines About 44 Women” but that is in the harmonic content and beats. There is a strange “too-experimental” outro to the track which made me triple take to make sure I didn’t click somewhere else though.

“Isn’t a Hero Just Someone Who Kills Foreigners” has some kind of political message with overdubbed demented harmonies, acid references and quirky interesting rhythmic choices for the vocal delivery. It mostly seems like free-association word play amongst the samples and frantic beat changes.

“Crazy” “Out There” “Weird” – all of these phrases would accurately describe the music created by Michael Nhat, but he at least gets mega points for creativity in a world of copycats.
