“Namor provides a colorful and musical voyage with the distinctively made Holyfield, blending genres with daring devotion to concept and the subtle use of narrative sound design. The track features Tucker Starbuck and LifeonMarzz, giving gritty vocal performances to pair with the aggressive synthesizers and blown out drums. A true work of art, Holyfield is a timeless bop that is sure to get your head nodding and your feet moving.
Roman Shokuri AKA “Namor” is an artist, producer, and songwriter from the Bay Area who blends Pop/R&B. He frequently works with vocalists to create silky-smooth tracks with a retro sound.
Namor has expressed his love for combining the sound of modern musical genres with the retro and “futuristic” sound of the 1980s, which can be heard through his consistent use of synthesizers. His early releases and collaborations have only scratched the surface of his creative potential and leave us with burning anticipation for his upcoming debut album.
Holyfield is a dark-themed song with a unique blend of modern production and retro elements. The song features a distorted vocal sample that sounds like it is coming through the radio, giving the track a vintage feel. The production is very eclectic, with trap, hip hop, and pop elements. The chorus, performed by LifeonMarzz, is catchy and will stay in your head for days.
Overall, Holyfield is one of the most unexpected projects of the summer, yet with enough threads of identity to remain cohesive even as it progresses between such divergent tones and styles. There’s a little something here for everyone, and that makes it all the more enjoyable.
