Released on October 25th, 2016
Fuse FM, St. Louis native Mvstermind adds clout to the Complex nod as a rising musician to watch with his highly anticipated release Cusp EP. After a three year hiatus from his previous project A.D.D. (Artistically Day Dreaming), Mvstermind perfects his art on Cusp EP by delivering music embedded with a spirituality and consciousness that reflect his integrity as a young black millennial navigating the music world.
The release explores the balance of two realms that dominate Mvstermind’s life -- an existential world that centers him through meditation and reflection on lofty ideals, and the real world that brings forth negative images and emotions from police brutality, racism, and heartbreak. Mvstermind delicately balances this dichotomy with impactful lyricism complemented by his bold, self-produced electronic soundscape.
As a leader in the St. Louis music scene, receiving high praise from notable publications such as Delux Magazine, Riverfront Times, and St. Louis Magazine, Mvstermind spreads the wealth on Cusp EP with well-timed features from talented pool of local artists. From the powerfully haunting vocals of Bryssa and Bloom to the emcee prowess of Najii Person and Arshad Goods (while not forgetting the spoken word maestro Corey Black), this nine track release solidifies Mvstermind’s position as an essential voice in today’s hip-hop.
