Fuzzy bass and retro keys lead us into a nostalgically smooth No Stress from rapper and artist B-Funk.
Driving with a quickly catchy hook for the intro, No Stress blends vocal lines for a back and forth to start things up with energy and purpose. Following this, the verses lay bare plenty of space – a certain minimalist set-up that keeps the focus on the rap voice; an upfront and cleanly mixed vocal, exposing the details and setting the scene accordingly.
The arrangement has a slightly home-made feel to it, but this adds authenticity and backs up the refreshing clarity of the vocal recording in a relevant way.
The simple set-up actually works in favour of B-Funk’s style and confidence, maintaining a unique sound within the current scene, and tipping its hat towards the legends of yesteryear in the same strike.
Smooth yet bold in concept and tone, No Stress ignites a sense of possibility and self-empowerment that works well to juxtapose the warmth of the soundscape.
