Mestizo and Mike Gao Blindfaith
- Words: Max Herman
- Label: Galapagos4
Not unlike many of his Galapagos4 label-mates, Mestizo opts to create hip-hop of the overcast and apocalyptic variety. And considering the current state of affairs in the world, he aptly keeps the vigilance going on his sophomore release, Blindfaith. But this album isn‘t entirely gloomy-new beatsmith Mike Gao counterbalances the darkness with occasionally bouncy output, as on the swing-styled "Pick Up 52‘s." Whatever the mood at hand, these beats and rhymes maintain a level of natural intricacy that requires nothing less than full attentiveness.
