MIKE. Very cold, very elusive. We caught him at his ‘BY THE WATER‘ EP launch at the Peckham Nines last week. Standing next to us in the crowd were King Krule & Cosmo Pyke, along with deep Hip Hop fans from all across the city and beyond. Though his tracks are often moody, MIKE kept the energies up, delivering a memorable show. Following this, he dropped the video for ‘GOD’S WITH ME’, the final track of the EP. Delivered in black and white, the visuals offer a drone’s eye footage of MIKE as he walks through his hood, linking up with various pals along the way. Though it’s a simple concept, the Fons Schiedon directed video matches the atmosphere of the track. If you want flashy lyrics and 808 glides then look elsewhere – MIKE is raw and to the point in both beat (which he produced), and lyrics.
