Mikill Pane returns with new track “The N.E.O.M.S.”

Following 2013’s album “Blame Miss Barclay” UK rapper Mikill Pane burst back onto the scene with his first release of the year “The N.E.O.M.S.” – the first offering from his upcoming 2nd album “The Night Elm on Mare Street”. An instant vindication for a true London rap icon.

Coming with a pure 80s synth baseline that sounds like it’s straight from ’Stranger Things’ – and bringing with it stylistic references to the likes of CASISDEAD, “The N.E.O.M.S.” is however punched through with Mikill’s typically playful, head-spinning wordplay. It’s a long-awaited and happy return from one of the most loved rappers in the UK scene.

In the retrofuturistic video-within-a-video, a holographic Mikill performs on screen to the delight of a 5-year-old version of himself (played by his godson, Kyrain); paying homage to the 80s – the era that started director Ato Yankey and Mikill on their respective paths. Watch here

With an outro from national treasure and comedian Romesh Ranganathan, Mikill has brought his A-game to this new release, and with the promise of more heaters on the way and a full body of work to come, get ready to hear a lot more from London’s acerbic commentator in chief. Welcome back Mikill, we’ve missed you.
