New Tune Review: Collective Trauma

KW-based rapper Caprice Soleil was perhaps first known for his precise production on tracks reaching as far as Florida in terms of influence.

Building off of his reputation for making ethereal, hard-hitting beats, Cap has transitioned fully into making dreamy, autotune-drenched trap bangers. Complete with catchy hooks, deep bass and strong melodies, his new music is sure to draw attention.

His most recently released track, “Lonely”, featuring SunniLong, is the sum of years of hard work and dedication as a rapper, singer and producer. Having perfected a sound that pairs well with smoky rooms and icy cups, the local rapper/singer has been dropping earworms consistently over the summer, beginning with “Miss Me” and following up with “Dime Piece” shortly after.

If you want to check out Caprice Soleil’s music, it is available on all streaming platforms. And make sure to check out his SoundCloud account and his Instagram page for up-to-date info on new releases. Expect big things from this well-rounded artist over the next year. 2021 is shaping up to be a big year for hip-hop in KW with the likes of Pizzy ONLY and Dom Vallie also making big moves in the local music scene.
