Discovery: Vakesso

Vakesso is a French hip hop artist whose emotive new track As de trèfle caught my ear.

By Graeme Smith

Drawing from elements of modern hip hop, Vakesso makes the sound his own. His vocals, wonderfully soulful, make good use of vocal effects without overdoing it. The instrumentals are kept stripped-back but groovy. As de trèfle is a track that keeps evolving and you end up in a very different place to where you began.

Still young and early in his career, Vakesso is putting out an impressive sound. I strongly suspect we’ll hear more from him. You can check out As de trèfle below.
