Slowest, smoothest sounds to kickstart your Mondays with. Thurz is not a new name in our feed as Nasko had featured his art before. Hailing from Inglewood, CA, the artist is not just dabbling in the hip hop space, but has an impressive experience as an event organizer as part of the traveling house party concert series Party In My Living Room.

Thurz’ new single “Rise” gives me some Mac Miller vibes (RIP), and is a straight-up feel-good vibes. The t rack is part of his upcoming one-off singles executive produced by the music blog

I gotta give mad props to Jimmy Duke whose beat is the absolute cherry on the top. I love the synergy between the 2 artists. The soulful and somewhat vintage boom bap beat crafted by Duke is the perfect launchpad for Thurz’ lyricsism which explores the themes of confidence and self-awareness. With charisma in excess, this laid-back head-nodder just drips cool and creates a laid-back vibe that’s like floating down the highway under a moon-filled sky.
