SHREM'S DOUBLE TROUBLE: "HOLD ON" - Duke Dumont feat. MNEK /// "CLOSER THAN CLOSE" - MNEK
Discovering Uzoechi Osisioma Emenike artistically known as MNEK and his sensational vocal capabilities is a blissful experience. This 18-Year-Old Singer/Songwriter/Producer/Remixer from South London not only has a very impressive vocal range but also a pretty spectacular collection of covers and re-fixes published on his Soundcloud. MNEK's take-on Rosie Gaines' house anthem "Closer Than Close" left me speechless. Collaborating with Duke Dumont, responsible for one of this year's juiciest #1's "Need U (100%)", will most likely introduce him to a wider audience and open the opportunities for more solo releases in the future. There wasn't a male voice that would stagger me to the same level since Jamie Woon. Pure.
