Ridiculously young producer, singer, and songwriter MNEK┬áhas already experienced commercial success as a featured vocalist (Gorgon City’s “Ready For Your Love”) and songwriter (Duke Dumont’s “Need U (100%)”), but now he is readying his major label debut and has released solo single “Every Little Word” to give us a taste of what’s to come. And what’s to come is likely lots of success, but without abandoning the sound that has brought him success so far.

That sound, a mix of house thump and MNEK’s (pronounced “em-en-ee-kay”) rich vocals, is combined with a funky vocoder part to create the excellent “Every Little Word.” This is undeniably pop music, but pop music with an edge, with something more than just a catchy chorus.
