Welcome – NelloLuchi @NelloLuchi
“Bedford-Stuyvesant, commonly referred to as Bed-Stuy, becomes the backdrop to Nello Luchi’s new single entitled “Welcome” off her upcoming EP of the same name. The track gives listeners a glimpse into the infamous Brooklyn neighborhood during the late 80s-early 90s. Spending her early years in the Lafayette Gardens housing complex, Nello goes on to mention one of Brooklyn’s most notorious residents Kelvin ’50 Cent’ Martin. Whose moniker would later be used by a future hip-hop heavyweight from Queens.
Produced by Phoenix Says of The Soundkillers, the song begins with a very eerie intro Nello harmonizes over. Nello then opens up her lyrical onslaught with a dope word play around her family’s surname. We also find out out that her Uncle was very notorious around the neighborhood for his “knuckle” game.
The song literally feels like a cinematic score of that era. The production feels as if it’s telling it’s own story as the beat seems like its going through “mood” changes.
Nello & Phoenix continue to develop this very original sound that is all theirs. We look forward to hearing what’s next as they continue to “Welcome” us into their musical world.”
