“It’s all about making an ‘Impact’ on the music scene and establishing myself as an artist living with Bipolar Disorder. In fact, it is the first time I have openly admitted about my struggles with the highs and lows of my condition and whilst it was quite challenging emotionally, I hope it can help others around the world who can relate to my experiences.”
Those were the words that newcomer Keido Bond used to introduce his debut anthem ‘Impact’, and they’re the words that really stick in your mind when first listening to the single. An artist and rapper who has been making waves for his activism and ability to seamlessly blend hip-hop and alt. pop, Keido Bond has become one of the mostly hotly anticipated artists around our offices, and his debut single proves exactly why.
Arriving within a pure frame of absolute authenticity, ‘Impact’ is a track made by its personal touches. Running through a series of ambient, blossoming grooves and progressive, lingering beats, the track perfectly reflects the inner turmoil that Keido has faced over the years.
