Nomad x Duan - Takeoff
MELBOURNE // BURN CITY
This is the one where you'll double tap and run it back, cause you might just miss the catch on the Duan produced track. Nomad has hit the sky, flying on his latest release 'Takeoff'.
Nomad is all about exceeding limits, and unpredictability... when you least expect it, he switches up to a sharp incline and soars further.
His verses? Off the hook. His cadence? Straight dangerous. His flow? Wavey. However, don't get it twisted, Nomad makes it clear that conscious rap is the mission, but Takeoff is a reminder that he can 'dumb it down and dummy rap' while staying elite.
"I came up with this song for a competition that Duan was co-hosting. He had supplied this beat for The Get Down Events and as soon as I heard it I had this song written/recorded in a few hours. Together, we felt like we had a track that captured the gritty, high energy feel of our Melbourne scene and personally I just really wanted to prove that even though y’all 'know me for the conscious rap' I really rap rap, and I’m confident in my pen" - Nomad
Duan flew in, charged up and kept the beat speeding with his sonic tornado.
"After going on an anime watching spree, I thought to create a track with a Japanese Arcade theme, with sound effects. It was a track made for a competition for a whole bunch of rappers on Instagram via TheGetDown.
It worked out well, where the theme of a classic arcade matched with the competitiveness of the bars everyone was throwing at each other over the song. But it was a battle royale... and only Nomad was the last man standing." - Duan
With an album on the way, Nomad has been hard at work for all of his patient fans, and we can confirm an album release date will be announced soon.
Until the curtain's open for this highly anticipated body of work, follow Nomad on IG and keep Takeoff spinning in your rotation.
