I always love artists that experiment with every release and try to shake up the music industry. Hadji Gaviota’s creativity is the epitome of this, as no song of his sounds the same. The Queens native just released his first song of 2023, “i love smoking mid” and all I hear is innovation.
One thing I love about all of his music is that it is genreless, and “i love smoking mid” has hints of electronic, bedroom pop and hyperpop sprinkled throughout. It is the kind of song you tell the DJ to play at a club and jump around to. His previous track “i’m bored” takes an abstract hip hop approach with his own spin on those of JPEGMAFIA and Brockhampton.
It is the perfect way for him to kick off the year, and I continue to be impressed every time he comes out with a new track. I’m stoked to see his evolution as an artist, as he continues to innovate his charismatic approach to music making.
