Watch List: Get Lost In The "Colors" of Michael Blume
With some Frank Ocean, some Sam Smith and a little bit of Stevie Wonder, Michael Blume sounds like a unique mix of our favorite things. Blume’s blend of R&B, neo-soul, hip-hop, jazz and electronica with avant-garde twists makes for easy listening and a perfect sound. Blume’s lyricism also expresses his passion and interest in cultural relevance, specifically racial equality and LGBTQ rights. In one of his more recent video releases, we see the artistry and stylistic choices when representing his music.
A casual vibe, rolling beats and Michael Blume’s never ending riffs make “Colors” a nonstop jam. The stark contrast between colors in the video against a almost constantly pure white background has a powerful effect.
In addition to “Colors,” “Manufactured Love” is another source of admiration for Blume as an artist.
