Thoughts on Contours 

If I lived in New York, I feel these are the kinds of creatives I need to be around. This is the perfect lo-fi beat to add to your music. Towards the end I caught some Breaking Bad vibes, like I could see this on an episode. You absolutely get into a trance like state more so when you want the accompanying visuals made by Thanoz. The guitar strums are a beautiful touch and truly make the beat like no other. This is a track that requires headphones. You are able to escape reality and go into your own world for the duration of the track. This is the first label release for Nitze and the beginning of a big 2021 for M!NT. You can listen to Contours on all streaming platforms by clicking here.

  

The video has a plethora of visual effects that are no easy feet. Harlem’s visual effects wizkid Thanoz blends futuristic New York City elements to recreate a visually stimulating world out of everyday locations. Thanoz describes the video as “a cinematic experience of our confusing reality.” We are thrown into various scenes and get peaks at the creative process M!NT goes through during the creation of this beat. The visuals are a perfect component to showcase the sounds and evoke the intended emotions.

Looking for more?

You can listen to this over and over and not get tired. It is perfect to study, write or escape reality to. The visuals are a perfect addition to add to the escapism of the sounds. I am hooked and want more from M!NT. If you want more check out the following links:
