2022 Forecast: Los Angeles Artists to Watch Featuring Amindi
EP Cover by Vinny Nolan

After a steady stream of singles in 2020, Inglewood artist Amindi dropped her debut EP Nice in 2021, an eight-song collection of honest internal monologues that reveal a journey of self-growth, self-realization and self-love; this personal journey draped in tight-knit rapping, sultry vocals, shape shifting beats and fluid melodies.

Building a deeper dam of music to share with fans, Amindi took 2021 to grow personally and explore a free form approach to the sound of her music, feeling neither boxed in nor committed to any one genre or way to sound. With clever, quicksilver lyrics and a sound tinged in a a warm, lo-if quality — Amindi crafts an attitude infused alternative R&B/ trip hop blend.

Infusing intricate lyrics to infectious hooks and melodies, Amindi pairs her unique perspective with broad influences from the music she grew up around to her Jamaican heritage. With Nice, Amindi cements herself as an artist with a powerful point of view and the creativity to deliver it with clean precision. After revealing more of herself this year, Amindi has more music, more visuals and performances to come in the next year.

In addition to her own music, Amindi has collaborated with other artists this year including a feature on Hunnah’s single “My Man” and on a single, “Fantasy,” with Raedio and 27Delly that was featured in HBO’s Insecure.

Amindi, along with artist Lute, will be supporting Saba on his North American tour next year with dates in Los Angeles on May 21 at the Novo, as well as other California dates in Santa Barbara on May 20 at the Catalyst and on May 19 at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco. Tickets for all dates can be found here.
