Coming with a pure 80s synth baseline that sounds like it's straight from 'Stranger Things' - and bringing with it stylistic references to the likes of CASISDEAD, "The N.E.O.M.S." is however punched through with Mikill's typically playful, head-spinning wordplay. It's a long-awaited and happy return from one of the most loved rappers in the UK scene.
In the retrofuturistic video-within-a-video, a holographic Mikill performs on screen to the delight of a 5-year-old version of himself (played by his godson, Kyrain); paying homage to the 80s - the era that started director Ato Yankey and Mikill on their respective paths.
With an outro from national treasure and comedian Romesh Ranganathan, Mikill has brought his A-game to this new release, and with the promise of more heaters on the way and a full body of work to come, get ready to hear a lot more from London's acerbic commentator in chief. Welcome back Mikill, we've missed you.
