It’s easy to get overwhelmed by the amount of music we have access to on a daily basis. Because of that, it’s also easy to overlook some gems, but hopefully Miss Mykie’s “Love Repair” will not be one that slips under the radar.
In an effort to prove her vocal chops, the Houston native released this 6 track EP on Valentine’s Day. It is a definite departure from her popular mixtape series “That Pink That Green”…but proves once and for all her versatility and range as an artist.
One of the greatest things about the project is that it tells a story, taking the listener on a metaphorical journey through the process of ending a relationship, healing and learning to love again. The lyrical content alone makes it worth the download, but it’s the production that really makes this album stand out. Yung Chill, the Executive Producer on the project has touted this as some of his best work to date. The live instrumentation on tracks like “Open Heart Surgery” and “Recovery”, provides a change of pace from the canned beats that have been a standard of the Houston music scene for so long.
Top to bottom, Love Repair is a solid effort, but on tracks like “Ain’t Made For Me”, and “Recovery”, Mykie’s vocals really shine through. If this project is any indication of what is to come from her as an artist, she is definitely one to watch.
Fans have the option of purchasing the EP from iTunes, or simply downloading it free of charge from her official website. I’d suggest supporting the project financially…but whatever you decide, make sure it ends up in your music rotation. You won’t be sorry.
Be sure to stay tuned, an accompanying project, “Love Repair: The Movie” is in production…and will premiere in a theater in the Houston area before it’s released to the public on DVD. Check out the trailer below, plus a few Uptown Lounge Exclusive pics from the EP’s release mixer that took place on February 12th at Letoya Luckett’s Lady Elle Boutique in Uptown Park.
