Alt-Hip-Hop artist Miss­ingno. gets nos­tal­gic on new infec­tious Hip-Hop/­Pop single ‘Dirty Beach,’ an ode to his child­hood vis­its to Coney Island and the feels of being by nature.

The emer­ging artist is slowly shap­ing up to be tomorrow’s torch­bear­er as his new song explores the feel­ing of enjoy­ing the beach, even if it’s not the clean­est. Miss­ingno. also delves into an envir­on­ment­al­ist per­spect­ive, where he sings about grease being in the water and plastic/bottles/cans being either on the fish or in the sand.

On the single, Miss­ingno. said, “The single brings forth my child­hood memor­ies and the love I have for nature and music, with a focus on how we treat the world at its cur­rent state’,

The smooth pro­duc­tion on the single was made up of wonky gui­tars and catchy synths (a whiny-high pitch synth and some mid-range 80’s sound­ing ones), but it also fea­tures pop­u­lar hip-hop drum ele­ments.

‘Dirty Beach’ is an inof­fens­ive beach/summer ori­ented song which show­cases the artist’s allur­ing, enig­mat­ic, yet play­ful char­ac­ter­ist­ics. The single also has an accom­pa­ny­ing video which may remind listen­ers of songs like ‘Water­mel­on Sug­ar’ by Harry Styles.

The humble but adven­tur­ous artist was born in Brook­lyn, NY, raised in Dal­las, TX, and cur­rently resid­ing in Akron, OH. Miss­ingno. adapts his name from a “glitch” in the ori­gin­al Poké­mon game, which is inter­preted as “miss­ing num­ber.”

As the ori­gins of his name would sug­gest, Missingno.‘s music heav­ily incor­por­ates game-like sounds that are remin­is­cent of many clas­sic Nin­tendo games and com­bines them with ele­ments of today’s Pop and Hip-hop / R&B. Since COV­ID-19 hit, Miss­ingno. has released two music videos, an EP, and vir­tu­ally per­formed for the ‘LAUNCH Music Con­fer­ence 2020’ (which usu­ally takes place in Lan­caster, PA). He also recor­ded a per­form­ance in his bed­room for the “Dayton Art In The City” fest­iv­al.
