In the ever-evolving landscape of Latin music, Colombian artist Feid, known for his multi-faceted talents, is back with a musical masterpiece that defies boundaries and embraces diversity. His latest album, 'MOR, No Le Temas A La Oscuridad' (MOR, Don't Fear The Darkness), not only showcases his impressive sound design and lyrical prowess but also marks a significant evolution in his career. With a nod to the 90s Nickelodeon show "Are You Afraid of the Dark?" and a bold exploration of darkness as a theme, Feid invites listeners on a musical journey that transcends genres and expectations.
For Feid, 'MOR, No Le Temas A La Oscuridad' is more than just an album; it's a defining moment in his career. The theme of darkness, often associated with negativity, takes on a new perspective here. Feid sees it as an opportunity for courage and personal growth. The album was crafted during an intensive month-long session in Los Angeles, where Feid and his long-time collaborators, including Sky Rompiendo, Wain, ICON (Jowan and Rolo), immersed themselves in the creative process. They deliberately ventured beyond the confines of Reggaeton, aiming for a more global sound.
One of the standout features of 'MOR, No Le Temas A La Oscuridad' is its collaborative spirit, which results in an array of diverse sounds throughout the LP. Feid's musical journey takes listeners from Afrobeat vibes on tracks like "Vente Conmigo" and "Bubalu" featuring Rema to the electronic landscape of "Luces de Tecno" and "Ferxxo 151" with ICON. The album effortlessly transitions to the world of Dancehall in "Niña Bonita," featuring Sean Paul, and explores a more urban gear in "Romanticos de Lunes" and "Gangsters & Pistolas" with Ñengo Flow.
Feid's signature Reggaeton dembow is present in "Ritmos de Medallo," featuring Ryan Castro, while the album even ventures into the realm of Indie Alternative with the closing track "Privilegios," featuring Cupido. This musical diversity is a testament to Feid's willingness to push the boundaries of his sound and experiment with different genres.
'MOR, No Le Temas A La Oscuridad' represents Feid's artistic evolution and his embrace of the global music scene. By exploring the theme of darkness and collaborating with a range of talented artists, Feid has crafted an album that transcends language and cultural barriers. It's an invitation to dive into a world of eclectic sounds and celebrate the courage it takes to step into the unknown. As Feid continues to expand his musical horizons, listeners can expect more innovative and boundary-pushing work from this multi-talented Colombian artist.
