Hear Pell and Tomas Barfod’s Dream-Rappy “Eleven:11”

Is “dream rap” a genre? If so, Mississippi rapper Pell is making it.

February 12, 2014


I feel like "dream rap" is becoming a genre—the dream-pop of cloud rap, or something, with down-to-earth verses over delicately dancey beats like the ones popping up on Soulection, or here by co-producers Tomas Barfod (remember "Broken Glass"?) and Jeppe Kjellberg. Relative newcomer Pell is based out of Mississippi, but there's the sound of anyplace with sunshine in him. He's got two tours and a new project, Floating While Dreaming, coming this spring. All signs here point to only good things.
