Oakland, CA native Enon Gaines walks a pretty interesting line. On one hand, he’s a vocalist who can serenade a few panties off of a female crowd and on the other he’s a more than serviceable rapper with a bit of wit and charm. His latest mixtape PhysiCool dabbles in plenty of wide eyed synths and common trepidation about love, success and all ideas in between. It’s a pretty standard affair that bends upon cruising music tropes (“Space City” & “Too Life”), bedroom wooziness (“Skin Deep”) and tape bonus “Awake” which sprinkles in slightly archaic eggs popping on decent vinyl with bass guitar licks and hardened kickdrums. The MTV-featured artist figures to crash more than a few items with his latest project, might as well get on board before the train gets full.
