Moses Ideka
Cast Out

It’s a pretty elementary idea that an artists’ debut is a decisive moment in their career. However, it’s rare that an artist is able to create an all-encompassing world of their own with a single song. London-based singer Moses Ideka managed to do just that with the release of “Cast Out”. Ideka is somewhat of an enigma on the internet, with only a single Instagram post and minimal presence elsewhere – this has left a lot of details about his artist persona up to interpretation, which adds to the lure of the single as a unique entity.

The track itself invests its focus in Ideka’s haunting and powerful vocals, and brings listeners into a deeply vulnerable space through his introspective lyrics and floaty harmonies. Its production relies heavily on airy synth chords and catchy drums, which makes for a refreshing pairing with Ideka’s powerful vocals. The song’s bridge and outro are bound to ring through your head for weeks. Having gotten a coveted Kenny Beats cosign, as well as support from institutions such as BBC Radio 1, it’s clear that Ideka is setting himself up as a voice to be reckoned with in the music industry as he continues to foster his artistry.
