NOTME pays homage to the sounds of J Dilla and DJ Shadow with “Trust Me.” The hypnotic release provides a contemplative, laid-back feel. Through the use of melodic samples, funky bass lines, and dreamy melodies, the artist creates an instrumental atmosphere that eases the minds of listeners. “TRUST ME” is a solid background soundtrack to which one can unwind, contrasting industry norms with experimental flair.
Max Lewis, one half of the electronic duo Arms and Sleepers, is now also operating under the moniker of his solo project, NOTME. Artistically, Max maintains a level of anonymity in an effort to let his craft speak for itself. Currently exploring soulful, instrumental hip-hop, the artist sheds light on what’s to come. With his debut full-length LP due for release this summer, NOTME aims to pique interest with intriguing production.
