Manchester have been coming strong with the vibes for a while now. From IAMDDB to Just Banco to Meekz, the city has consistently been producing a small and underrated scene of artists to make the country proud. One up and comer out of the city includes new black butter signee HMD (short for Hamdi - think JME to Jamie), a melodic trap artist who has been dropping some heat since he’s made his start.
Today the j hus, octavian, and young t and bugsey labelmate returns with a new, catchy and standout tune called Trauma. Taking influence from the more melodic side of trap music, HMD croons over a bassy and ethereal banger from.
The synth chords give way to some hypnotic and rhythmic melodies and drum patterns that HMD glides over, with a strong voice. He has a lot of range and great delivery, giving the song a lot of replay value over some of the weaker vocalists in UK music.
The song feels perfect for a live show, whether its a venue or a club setting but till that’s back on the cards, you might have to settle to streaming it on YouTube or streaming services below.
