MIKE – Burning Desire

$89.95 Inc. GST

MIKE’s “Burning Desire” is a genre-bending exploration of dark romance and simmering rage. Released in 2023, it’s his ninth studio album and a thrilling departure from his usual sound. Imagine a horror movie with a twisted love story at its core, punctuated by moments of dark humor. That’s the atmosphere MIKE cultivates here.

The instrumentals, mostly self-produced under his alias dj blackpower, are a revelation. For the first time, he incorporates live instrumentation, adding depth and richness to his signature gritty soundscapes. Guest features are plentiful, with Earl Sweatshirt, Larry June, and a handful of underground artists lending their talents to the project.

Lyrically, the album wrestles with complex emotions. MIKE reflects on loss and past struggles, but there’s a newfound sense of resilience here. He honors loved ones lost while grappling with themes of revenge and destruction. It’s a raw and honest portrayal, delivered with his characteristic sharp flow.

“Burning Desire” is a bold artistic statement. It pushes boundaries while maintaining the underground authenticity that defines MIKE’s work. Critics have hailed it as a landmark release, one that might redefine the genre in years to come.
