Okmalumkoolkat Releases New EP



Four years after the release of Umlazi Milano, Malumkoolkat returns with the release of his much anticipated 6 track EP titled Bhlomington which features hip hop legend Da Les and some production from 2Kriss. This EP drops with a banger “Ooh Ya Ishu” which has taken the streets by storm thus far.

In his signature fashion, this EP traverses a range of styles and genres. From gliding between the minimalist electro of project opener “More Money Mo” to riding over the bristling bass on the Zooci Coke Dope-produced “Fell in Love With The Mpahlas,” ‘koolkat shows his musical dexterity with consummate ease.

The hip hop influence is as apparent on “Hawaiian” whilst standout track “Oh Ya Ishu” folds Okmalumkoolkat’s many facets into an infectious jam. The tropical elements of the beat prop up the artist’s unique flow and witty lines like “Spovo, we fly like an airline” sum up the inventive direction of the EP perfectly.

This EP is a lot more special as Malumkoolkat also shows off his singing. “I play with a lot of my vocals on this new project. Im not afraid to sing anymore or play different characters in one track. It’s mind theatre “said Koolkat .
