HIP HOP FIND: Deleon – Midnight

deleon

Darryl Lopez, better known as Deleon, shows off his skills on Midnight.

Hailing from Los Angeles is Deleon, a producer with a difference. His website displays some fine artwork as well as his production prowess. The first song to catch my attention was Midnight, a drowsy stumbling beat heavy on the kick and sleepy on the vocals. The wordplay executed on this caters to this quality of beat; something similar to that of the Earl Sweatshirt/Brainfeeder school of rhyming but I feel the piano-driven sample and staggered vocal interjections are what give the track its edge. Los Angeles stay packing that beat heat!
