Coming on the scene with a laidback Jazzy “hit you in the feelers” style that that’ll get you thinking, Sydney-based artist and producer Em3L has combined vocals, playful rhymes mixed with serious truths about mental health and hypnotic production influenced by Mac Miller, BadBadNotGood, Kanye Weat, and many many more. His debut track, “Enough”, Sparked controversy amongst many as it stated the obvious about culture vultures trying to step in and thinking the community owes them anything. Em3L hit another peak with “Crooked” a song about wanting a good time with no strings attached turned love story! Em3L followed up with “Keep In Mind” a song about breaking up with one’s self inner thoughts of despair & agony.
EM3L was born Martin Lopez, in San Jose, CA. Em3L first used the alias WORM, but quickly realised he needed a more personal approach so he used his initials instead.
EM3L later started his blog site RAPS AND THINGS where he writes up music articles for up and coming artist that can’t afford today’s ridiculous blog prices, later using the name R&T to start “Fresh out of F%*ks Productions” to help throw events under the same name “Raps and Things” which further gives up and coming artist a platform to perform their art where they normally wouldn’t be able to do so.
