Featured Song: Shisto – Express.
Shisto. Remember the name. Jalil Merriman, an 18 year old producer from Maryland, has absolutely taken off as of late, pushing out a steady flurry of hard-hitting releases – from his jaw-dropping Stranger Things theme song flip to his electric remix of Kehlani’s Gangsta – each one seemingly more impactful than its predecessor. And this hasn’t gone unnoticed – his growth has been impressive, but it’s just the start of what’s to come.
Shisto calls “Express” a new direction for him, and, indeed, it does mark a departure from his traditional trap/future bass offerings – although his unmistakably crisp production continues to shine through just as it did before. This one is an awesomely soulful track with whirring synths, playful melodies, and punchy drum breaks. In all, a new beginning for the fledgling star, and one we dig – a lot.
