Daily Track: "Midnight by olukara"

This Friday I want to share a flashback with you guys. This track is a 2013 release from an  underground rapper who goes by the name olukara and it features one of my favorite tracks of all time, Midnight Cit by M83. It is a chill hip-hop track that is perfect for starting your Friday morning off right.

  1. olukara is a rapper from Cincinnati that has been in the game for a while. After browsing his discography I can say that this dude has some serious talent. He comes from a rare breed of artists who don't rely on DJ Mustard beats to be heard. 
  2. Each line is very introspective and the emotion is strong. This makes me imagine I am in a dark room with some homies, alcohol, and weed. Thinking about life, where we are going, and where we have been.
  3. The sample used for the beat, if you didn't already know, is Midnight City by M83. From 2011-2013ish this song has been sampled over and over again. I have heard countless variations and this is definitely one of my favorites that was tastefully done.

Check out Midnight by olukara below and be sure to show him some love on his Soundcloud if ya dig. 


Extra Note: This track was found by using Cymbal. It is a new app from some recent college grads that is the Instagram for music. As a DJ, Producer, and music connoisseur I HIGHLY recommend it.
