A continuously mysterious maker of head-scratch inducing, lo-fi rap, a large part of SToNE’s appeal is the uncomfortable calm of his music, it feels like being caught in the centre of a raging tornado. This unease if once again center stage on ‘NYB 2.0’, another perfect slice of zany, vocally-altered madness. The rapper is insanely good at turning the most simple of beats into rugged, shadowy playgrounds for his obtuse, malevolent songwriting. Arguably, ‘Sand’ is the better single, sporting goofy vocals molded into stuttering flows. Both songs prove that SToNE’s apex as an artist is nigh, and that his ability to string together a colourful, memorable piece of music has only strengthened with time.
