Gabriel Black + RL Grime (🎵)
First off, we have Gabriel Black teaming up with LA vocal powerhouse, Sofi de la Torre, delivering us an unbelievably catchy track titled ‘Jump’. Quite a simple composition at its core, ‘Jump’ alternates vocalists over a sublime acoustic beat that lingers in your brain. The subject matter of the the track is staggeringly dark yet the song has a mysteriously vibey aroma. I’d be lying if I knew anything about this artist but I can say with confidence that i’m very interested to see what else he comes up with if he stays this course.
Up next we have a fresh RL Grime track. I feel as through RL Grime expanded the target audience for this track to appeal to literally everyone…which is a far cry from his trap-ish roots. Granted, his more recent releases have been more synth-heavy (and that’s been great) but he is really casting a wide net with this one. It’s almost like he has taken a page out of The Chainsmoker’s book. Also, the timing perfectly primes ‘I Wanna Know’ to be a spring hit in North America. What are your thoughts?
