We’re very excited to announce that Atlanta artist naKota has finally released his three song EP entitled First. If you’re looking for fresh, naKota has that in abundance. With soulful, R&B-tinged vocals moving across darkly danceable beats and synths, naKota seems to be on the fringe of the next big thing and is unlike anything we’ve heard coming from Atlanta. The aspect that separates naKota from the rest of the soulful newcomers out there is the intensity and animalistic energy behind his sounds. From the vocals on down to the cadence, First has a pulse that makes you want to move. And naKota’s cover of Sade’s “Smooth Operator” is one track we can’t stop playing. Check out First below.
