Lo Creed - Hope (Cold Busted)

The prolific Cold Busted label reaches into Athens, Greece to expose the funky sound of Apollo Neopoulos, also known as Lo Creed. He debuts his style of ‘Mediterranean hop’ on the eleven track album titled Hope, showcasing funky flavorings, punchy beats, and gritty instrumentation. Highlights include the late night strut of “Stay United,” the sensual bedtime funk of “Remind,” “Join The L.U.V. Club” with its lush strings and piano over crisp drums, and the album’s title track with its appealing bounce and layers of sampled freshness. It will quickly become evident that Lo Creed’s Hope is indeed ‘dope’ … grab hold and get down.
