In recent months, A&R exec, McKoy has gained reputation as one of the new vanguards of the Lagos underground scene, with his impressive skill of tapping up rising artists and hoisting the spotlight on them through collaborative efforts.
His debut track of 2022 titled “Jay Jay” on which he featured DJ212 and Slickk went on to be a staple pop number at outdoor parties, with the lively texture of the song contributing to the rave nature of Lagos night scenery.
For his new release, Pool Party, McKoy’s ear for production comes to the fore again. Choosing a soft, bubbling beat made up of sweet, lilting melodies, the trio of Ghash, Jayson and Slickk—alongside IAmDrop’s interjecting vocal drops—take turns to weave their deliveries around the theme of lust.
The mood is sensual and at the same time groovy, supplemented by some sleek and rapid Amapiano log drums. The varying voices — from the raspy vocals of Ghash to the sleek, easy musings of Slickk contribute to the feelings of excitement the song conjures.
Ultimately, the quintet of McKoy, Ghash, Jayson, Slickk and IAmDrop plumb the depths of groove with a deft hand, enhancing their sensual desires with precise imagery.
