Hip-hop genre blender M3staken adds to his prolific record output with ‘Rain’
With two full-length albums under his belt in the past year, experimental hip-hop artist M3staken (M3) has returned with his third album Rain, representing the end of the musical ‘trilogy’.

As with his previous releases, Apex and Water Colors, South-Carolina born artist M3staken has worked hard to hone and craft a truly one-of-a-kind experimental style that blends hip-hop with a bold electronic sound. Apex even employed a classical piano vibe in conjunction with M3’s unheard of style.
However, this is part of what makes M3staken unique as an emerging artist. By pushing musical boundaries and not restricting himself to one specific genre, M3 is setting himself apart from the crowd with his amalgamation of complicated beats, fracturing sound effects and dark ambience that make for an intriguing listen that requires both attention and aesthetic appreciation.
Although M3staken takes inspiration from contemporary acts such as Joey Bada$$, Jamie XX and FKA Twigs, these influences are mere hints that the talented young producer draws upon when concocting his complex style of music.
As the last piece of M3’s trilogy, he notes that this is the album that has meant the most to him due to its conclusive nature that seems to summarise his style. M3 commented that Rain is ‘loosely connected to my two previous works and it is primarily a collection of my personal favourite songs’.
