South London artist/producer 169 has dropped a new tape Nothing Before It’s Time, his third project following 2018’s Seasons.
The project is eight tracks long and has a run time of just over 23 minutes. It’s written, produced and mixed by 169 himself and includes talented feature appearances from RV, Mnelia and Lavida Loca.
169 delivers a mellow body of work, flexing his producing talents and his range of melodic vocals too. The chemistry with the features on the tape, particularly with Mnelia on “Emotions” provide a soothing and emotional listen.
“If I could summarise the sentiment behind this project in a few words, it would be trust in the process,” 169 wrote on Instagram. “It’s been a long journey, lots of ups & downs; moments I wasn’t sure anymore about this all, but you guys believe in me, I believe in me, my sound. This is the result of patience and hard work.”
