South London native, Deoba traverses a different route on his new project 'Chillogy'. The 6 track EP sees the alternative hip-hop act deliver some mellow, chilled out music that is unique to his person. Armed with a relaxed, baritone voice, Deoba creates an experimental and atmospheric vibe throughout the EP, using imaginative storytelling skills.
The EP in question is a conceptual body of work that deals with the relationship between 2 characters, Melo and Nicole. Deoba plays puppet master as he takes both individuals through an emotional rollercoaster, tackling lovelorn, sensual themes against laid-back soundscapes provided by producers such as Mecca:83, Chris Calor amongst others.
Speaking about the inspiration behind the EP, Deoba says,
“‘Chillogy’ is me trying to create a world where my listeners understand the everything of words. I wanted to, in the most creative ways, paint a picture of my life experiences that my listeners could relate to, using these two conceptual characters ‘Melo’ and ‘Nicole’ to explore human desire and emotions, while still providing good music to listen to, anyway”.
Serving as the perfect record for those cold night and after-hours playlists, released just in time as the summer begins to give way to the autumn, Deoba has crafted a stellar debut offering, which is underpinned by his smooth rap flow, strong storytelling and atmospheric instrumentation, which together, create the most chill and relaxed vibe for listeners, as the title of the EP ‘Chillogy’ aptly suggests.
