Bobii Lewis' debut mixtape dropped last week, and it certainly didn't disappoint. The 9 track project features Wretch 32, Stefflon Don and Haile from WSTRN, with production from KZ The Producer. After a strong summer, (a highlight for the R&B singer being when he recently supported Jerimih at KOKO) Bobii wowed us on this project with more than just his vocal ability. Blind In The Summer is a well rounded body of work, showcasing Bobii's versatility as an artist while maintaining a sound that feels authentic to him.
With an atmospheric first track featuring Mike Keys, Blind In The Summer leads with Temptation, a summer-infused joint that oozes with the same carefree quality of most of the other tunes we've had on repeat lately. Another standout track is Friends And Lovers featuring Stefflon Don; Bobii's smooth tones are effortless alongside the dancehall inspired instrumental, resulting in another feel-good tune that really kicks off the project.
Of course, an old favourite from the tape was Special, an existing release from Lewis that has endured despite it first being released over a year ago. A flip on Snoop Dogg and Pharrell's Beautiful, seeing special on this tape reminds us why Bobii does what he does best, with a voice that feels soothingly familiar whilst fresh at the same time.
