AMF ARTIST OF THE MONTH

MIKE MELINOE

We’re excited to feature Mike Melinoe as our November Artist of the Month! The Detroit-born, Austin-based rapper and visual artist will be releasing his next full-length album ‘CLAJIDU’ on November 15.

Known for psychedelic sounds & lo-fi internet bred aesthetic with old-school lyricism, Melinoe deliberately swerves his way through dragged out ballads with crisp clarity. His music exists on a plane that marries boom-bap to the intricate chaos that can only be summoned by a computer. Melinoe raps with an elevated consciousness about his life, but eschews the narrative for a college of image with impressive vocal elasticity.
