Gritty bars balanced with comedy and carefree devotion to the moment – along with a consistently shifting flow – introducing a haunting, classically dark hip hop and trap soundscape for this heavy new release from Aztec Flow.
Bringing together the timeless aspects of hip hop with the more contemporary production choices of the genre, Vertigo feels all at once like a golden classic, a satirical alternative, and a modern twist on all things rap and gangster. The second verse reinforces these traits – as do the accompanying visuals. The final verse boldly seals the deal.
Aztec Flow, Atahan and Echo The Don each contribute a relevant vibe, unwavering energy, and a clear sense of character to the track, making for what is a musically simple yet striking, memorable and captivating injection of modern hip hop.
You can’t help but follow these bars along, trying to capture the underlying intention effectively, whilst enjoying the retro groove that satisfies for its nostalgic, rhythmically hypnotic qualities. Easily worth a few spins this season.
