Floco Torres-Catch Me

One that popped up in my inbox recently, and it’s a slice of hip-hop with a fun edge that’ll definitely win some folk over.

The production has a pretty jovial nature, combining some excellent live percussion with a few sharp guitar strums and a bouncy melody for an energetic and upbeat backdrop that has that ‘stuck in your head’ quality. It’s a nice blend of hip-hop and alternative, and given that blends of those two genres tend to be ‘edgy and serious’, this makes for a positive departure from that predictability.

Floco’s raps are honest and likeable, and the confidence is certainly present as he seeks to prove himself with each bar, though it’s the man himself that seems to really stand out-throughout the video Torres is great fun to watch, combining a little mischief with a lot of charisma for a performance that suggests this is an upcomer with a lot of self-assuredness. It’s a welcome change from the angry, driven rapper clawing for a spot, and let’s hope there’s more to come. You can grab this track on his 10,000 Hours EP right now.

    GREAT review.

    This video is a breath of fresh air. Hip hop tends to be very aggressive and in many ways ‘fake’. This is as real as it gets. This was very easy to not only enjoy but relate to in my own life. I hope to see more of Floco Torres.

    The name of this site is perfect with the review of the video. As a fan since his first album in 08, Floco is truly an underrated talent.

    Floco has come a long way in a short amount of time. Love the new work
