Artist To Watch

Afrobeats record producer and artist Lancky Cresco releases “All This”

Published

By

Multifaceted Nigerian-American artist and record producer Lancky Cresco today shares a brand new single titled, “All This.”

The talented artist renowned for his cross-genre sound palette of Hip Hop, R&B & Afrobeats strikes again with this cathartic record that has him wear his heart on his sleeve. “All This,” is a creative blend of sounds and melodies that incorporates various elements into it – making for a dynamic work of art that sets the tone for who Cresco is.

Combining strummed guitars, haunting background cacophony, rhythmic shakers, among a raft of sounds, this Lancky cut, like the majority of his works, is sticky with emotion, grosses a fullness about it, and has an almost heartbroken texture. Subject matter wise, Lancky is in a lamentation state of an ex-lover as he combs through different feelings to share this powerful record. The track is a well-rounded effort of pain. 

“Looking at the world around us we have all this beauty, we need to take time to appreciate it,” Lanky Cresco says.

Lancky, who has made a name for himself for managing to bridge traditional influences of music with a modern approach, follows this song after his earlier releases “DONGOYARO” & “Super Glue.”

“Helping people is what is making me dedicate my life to music,” he says. “I believe music can change the world, and I want to contribute my music to uplift people, changing the world one step at a time.”

His bombastic vibes are clear for everyone to vibe to on “All This.” He has previously stated his music “is medicine for good mind and body” and this recipe is again reinstated on his latest single. 

He started making music from an early age while he was in elementary school in Nigeria before joining the choir to further his prowess on the drums. With a profound background in music, he has now developed his craft into a full-throttle music production craftsman and mix engineer that conjures savory sounds that exude feel-good vibrations. He is also a singer by design and can stir up different inflections and melodies to deliver meaningful messages through song.
