If you haven’t heard of Gadda yet, it’s worth mentioning that his single “Caravan” from his debut EP “Bronze”, created in his studio-bedroom and self-released by the way, was listed as one of the 10 best songs of June by ChartAttack and rightfully so. The first release of a trilogy, Gadda is slowly but surely making a name for himself in his hometown of Toronto with his unique, refreshing blend of downtempo R&B and dreamy, chill, hip hop ambiance. It is hard to push this artist into a singular genre as this EP demonstrates a smorgasbord of various sounds and influences. The fifth track “In The Shell” served as the first video release for Gadda and I’m sure “Caravan” is next in line. If you’re a fan of artists like Frank Ocean and the Weeknd’s pre-50 Shades blow-up, you’ll definitely vibe to this. Don’t sleep on this artist, expect big things from Gadda. His EP is available to download for free via his Soundcloud page. Check out the video below for “In the Shell” and stay up to date via his Facebook page. Keep your eyes and ears open for this one and support local, independent artists. Real, raw talent is what the industry needs right now.
