The more conscious end of the musical spectrum, preferring reflective observations to aggressive energy – indeed is something that we noted from first listen. Operating on the boundary between urban positive grime based grooves and more straight forward, lyrically orientated hip-hop this is example of how to drop a project.
Addressing the concerns of British urban youth while carefully setting them a good example is never going to be easy but For The Love Of Music it’s done and done well. It’s an archetype bolstered by big drums, stirring string crescendoes and schmaltzy piano melodies seemingly lifted from TV-movie dramas with lyricism.
Music and Hip-Hop isn’t just about the poetry, it’s also about performance, and with a string of forthcoming dates up and down the country it’s no wonder their presence in the scene is increasingly. If you download one mixtape this week make sure this is it.
