Highly Recommended: Leo Kalyan – Stranger (Mixtape)

Leo Kalyan describes his debut mixtape Stranger as, “a playful glimpse into my musical imagination.” What a wonderful place that is, with his sterling reworking of covers such as Faith Evans’ “Love Like This” and Charli XCX’s “Boom Clap”. Leo’s talents aren’t limited to covers though, there’s a taste of his full array of skills on the mixtape’s title track “Stranger” which was co-produced by Shift k3y. Stranger is a wonderful introduction to the mysterious artist and if these seven songs are anything to go by he should enjoy his anonymity while he can. With music this good, Leo should be releasing a project titled ‘Famous’ if all goes to plan this year.
