Towkio, ‘2 Da Moon’ | Track Review
Up and coming Chicago rapper Towkio shines on single “2 Da Moon,” featuring Teddy Jackson and Grace Weber.
Could Chicago rapper Towkio be the next big thing? Perhaps. If his single “2 Da Moon” is any indication, there’s definitely lots to like. He’s assisted by Teddy Jackson and Grace Weber. Notably, Weber has worked with another Chi-town MC – Grammy-winner Chance the Rapper.
“2 Da Moon” commences with a killer groove and infectious bass line. Fair warning, head-nodding and foot-tapping is unavoidable. Overall, the production is fresh, yet throwback, which is a winning mix. Clearly, Towkio is feeling the vibe with his passionate screams prior to his exuberant verse. Following his first verse, Teddy Jackson enters the picture with relatively low-key, but smooth and soulful vocals. Grace Weber follows suit, contrasting with more powerful vocals. Interestingly, Weber sounds like a throwback to 90s hip-hop and R&B vocalists, which is a huge compliment. Ultimately, “2 Da Moon” is a mix of alternative R&B, hip-hop, 90s R&B, 90s hip-hop, and of course, the more modern script.
A bit quirky, “2 Da Moon” is ultimately a treat. As an initial introduction to Towkio, it piques my interest to hear more. Additionally, with great moments from Jackson and Weber, it opens the door to give them some listening love as well. “2 Da Moon” is a blast.
