MR BRADY -- PURE ACTION/SKILLS/NO LIMELIGHT/HUSTLE
LOST AND FOUND REC.
Man you know you large when artists from the west be sending you wax!
Just playin, thanx to Mr Brady for the reach out. Its even better when
the wax got good quality joints on it. Once again i'm lovin this indi
game as Brady pops up unexpectedly with the goods on this single. The
first thing to strike you is the immediate head nod factor of the songs.
You can tell that the beats have been worked on as none of em sound the
same. Some beats venture into the cleaner sound eg. "SKILLZ", while others
pack the bottom ends and dirt to the max, check "HUSTLE" for this.
I can only describe this as murky, underground style, productions. The
tracks never become cluttered with too many samples or elements. Brady
has a baritone voice not dissimilar to a certain saucy nomad but thats
where the comparison ends. His rhymes arent too complex or simple and
wont change your life but will keep you listening.
"PURE ACTION" contains a sample of an old commodore 64 favourite...Pheonix.
"SKILLZ" features Evidence from Dilated peoples and is my pick of all
the tracks as they go verse for verse, educating skilled emcees who are
out of touch with reality. Keep listening to the other tracks and you'll
be rewarded with some more tight lyrics that just slap you silly when
the content is so on point.
"NO LIMELIGHT" for instance cuts out almost all the lower frequencies
and adds a few eerie sounds for a minimalist production approach. The
hook is pure hip hop "fuck the limelight, glamour glitz and false images".
On "HUSTLE TO MC" the boom bap returns with devastating effect, you'll
need good speakers to handle this bottom heavy track. A hard working emcee
with dope beats delivering 4 tracks ,2 instrumentals and an accapela on
one 12" single, now thats value for money.
