Even in War is the second online release from East London’s finest newcomer Damien Ike.
Even with Damien Ike’s short music library, he already has high praise from SBTV, BBC1XTRA, KCRW and Complex.
Listening to ‘Even in War’ is a spiritual experience. The up-and-coming R&B crooner show off impressive vocals surrounded by booming percussion. Ike also shows off a mature tone and a seamless vocal production.
“It’s a driven, ready-for-battle anthem, backed by a crashing, bass-heavy drum beat and a super intense, gravelly vocal.” Complex
Ike’s shows similarities with one other infamous crooner right off the bat: John Legend. He’s no joke. The best is yet to come from Damien Ike. Considering he’s in the early stage in his career, and he’s already producing music with this much depth and quality sound, we predict you’ll be seeing much more of him in the future.
