Often times, following a dope artist or producer will put you on to new musicians that are also incredibly talented. Keeping up with Cali producer Nova is just how I came across Bay Area newcomer Emilio Paredes. Mixing melodic vocals with somber raps Emilio premieres his debut EP, Places.
Producing three out of the eight songs on the EP, Nova’s wavy production sets the pace for things to come on the EPs intro. Fellow producers Atenrays, Steezfield, AdotTheGod and the rap-crooner himself also contribute on the production end of this downtempo, melancholy project. With featured appearances by Alex Jordahl and Steezefield, stream Emilio Paredes’ Places EP below.
