Hot! Mach-Hommy Drops His Best Album to Date, “Balens Cho (Hot Candles)”

Mach-Hommy brings a refreshing sound to hip-hop, paving the way with his bilingual rap. He raps in French, an ode to his Haitian roots, and English, as he’s based out of Newark. His alluring image is bolstered by his elusive identity – for example, he never shows his full face, opting to wear a mask instead. When it comes to his music, he puts forth a range of sounds and styles: some tracks are backed by large brass sections and soulful piano progressions, while others are stripped down and minimalist. He hits you in your feels on his slow songs and gets you fired up with his upbeat ones. The album is stellar start to finish.
