In the short time that I’ve known Maikéru, I’ve been most impressed by the composure and thought that goes behind his releases. The run of impressive work continues with PASTEL – EP, a collection of varied tracks meant to get everyone in the mood for the first summer post-COVID-19. From the upbeat braggadocio of PHOTOSHOOT to the somber vulnerability of POOLSIDEBLUES, the range that Maikéru is able to provide in such a short amount of time is inspiring. As a bonus, we even get a streamlined version of LEGENDSONLY, one of the signature songs in the Maikéru catalog. Definitely don’t sleep on this one.

The homie poolboi blu recently introduced me to Maikéru, a young and ambitious R&B performer (at the risk of minimalizing his talent) with an eccentric flair (at the risk of minimalizing his style). Maikéru definitely seemed down to Earth, but after meeting him, I started to notice clips of his popping up on the timeline. A week or so ago, poolboi blu let me know that he and Maikéru were stopping by the Austin-based Rooftop Takes to perform Maikéru‘s latest single Prada, a song about opposites attracting in the best ways possible. Check out the performance, leave a like and a comment if you dig it, share it around, and then seek out more music from poolboi blu and Maikéru.
