Heavy beat-play and haunting synths drive with a classic hip hop energy for this crisp and confident new track from Johannesburg artist ODC.
Undoubtedly an artist with passion and talent combined, plus a beautifully addictive vocal tone.
Digging deep into precisely the story-line implied by the title, Thank God You Cheated holds nothing back – regret and betrayal roam free throughout the lyrics, the verses in particular detailing both the heartbreak and the desire to move forwards.
Classic dance music in the depth of the night is the blanket under which this kind of release naturally settles. As always, there are flickers of inspiration from across the globe, not least of all shown through the vocal fragments that are in Zulu – these are actually the names of spices, a quirky nod to the track’s title and underlying concept.
He crafts his tracks in an open & fee manner, yet still keeps you embraced by the warmth & weight of engaging, gripping, authentic rock & roll.
