This piece has been out for a minute and no I wasn't sleeping on it. This is the Verseless-produced After Midnight EP by Mile.
The EP starts off with a... I don't know what to call it, but it's from Crimson Blu. I know most didn't get the Freedom Is Blu wordplay (for reasons beyond me). Word on the street is tha Mile and Crimz are now officially a couple. So I'm guessing this EP is a sneek peak?
Before I go any further please be warned that this EP is mostly R&B so yeah...
The first track Secrets is about laying oneself bare emotionally and erm physically, revealing their innermost desires and fears. Verseless comes in and does some dope beatboxing on it too. The EP was off to a great start.
Wazotichi (not sure if this was a typo or...) takes us in the space where one man finds himself in after proposing to his love interest and is still awaiting an response. Ko wazoti chii? (What have you decided?). It does have this nostalgic 80s feel to it that a music connoisseur like me can't help but enjoy.
The Lot introduces our first dose of Mile the rapper on this project and judges from the content of this track she said yes when he asked wazotichi.
War is undoubtedly my favourite track off this EP and I'm sure most will agree with me. It's sure to get you in your emotions as you reminisce about love and fighting for it. It gives a nice climax to the EP. Wait, there's still one more song? Errrrrmmm
Last Time is the black sheep of the EP for me. It just feels like a throwaway track, especially being put after War. I hope this is the last time that happens, pun intended.
Overally, I enjoyed this EP as it was both ambitious but also the collaboration between Mile and Marcques worked and as Mile's second project of the year won't disappoint. A perfect soundtrack for when you're sitting in your room after midnight to drown the silence.
