SMUT WORLD by Milo Akoo

SMUT WORLD” goes hard in the way that modern rap needs to in order to be heard. Wayde is an artist who pushes for that weight with lyrical rhythm and skill, rather than with the overloading of creative musical moments or volume. The heart of hip-hop is in the expression, the flow, the confidence, and the character, and this is exactly what you see showcased in this release. “Milo Akoo” has done an amazing job by releasing this piece of work to all the audience out there. His latest single “SMUT World” has a sounds more in touch with Indiana’s reputation as a vibrant and versatile hub of talent. The track deftly fuses Milo’s adeptness with Rocketboy Nift’s hard rhymes, while exploring the artistry that lies within the rappers.

There’s a notable level of character to the song, particularly when it comes to the lyrics – the perspective expressed is done so in a unique way that shines brightly with individuality and personal roots. The single reaches out as the sort that is for anyone and everyone, accessible and relevant to all – exemplifying togetherness and unity. The accompanying video features some beautifully cinematic shots that highlight our colorful world and the positive energy within it. There’s an easy-going mood to the images and this suits the underlying aura of the song. Milo Akoo’s writing and the sound fit well among the unfolding scenes. His voice has a definite tone and performance style that is again loaded with character. The track’s title, the lyrics, the concept, and indeed much of the production – all of this feeds further into his musical stamp of identity.

As a creative, Milo Akoo is not afraid to utilize space, allowing mere fragments of sound to pave the way for the journey that will follow. Many producers fear space and pause and it leads to overly full or rap, hip hop soundscapes. SMUT WORLD is a strong example of attentive craftsmanship in music and why it’s so important. The beat running in the backdrop has a techno-like aura to it, though the genre doesn’t really cross your mind as it plays – you’re captivated by everything that meets with you. The rhythm and movement allow the calm to bring with it an all-important element of excitement and possibility. As always, an absolute pleasure to listen to and write about.

The track in its entirety has an impact. Occasionally there’s an inclination to tentatively lower the volume before diving into some newly recorded metal, but in this case, the quality of the capture is phenomenal – the music screams out for you to maximize the volume and embrace the experience wholeheartedly. Plus, there’s so much melody and passion – the sound is welcoming and inclusive, yet not at the cost of emotion and intensity. There’s also a lot about the lyrics that is worthy of your attention, and this distinctly enhances the song’s effect. The whole thing fills you with energy, it makes you live in the moment (which is occasionally difficult these days), and it’s a lasting effect.
