Keeping things heavy yet crisp, clean-cut and alternative enough to connect on a genuine level, Pablo Saucekay hits the contemporary hip hop scene with style and unwavering confidence.
Featuring an addictive hit of production, complete with a chaotic piano loop that contrasts well with the sheer weight and depth of the beat, the track creates an engaging mood from the offset, and Pablo’s flow, varied throughout, fills in the remaining gaps.
Making sure to keep things relevant topically but also throwing in more than a few personal references – to introduce a sense of individuality – Pablo works with the best of his abilities as a versatile performer and writer. At the same time, the track feels decidedly natural, almost like a freestyle but a little more organised and rhythmically faultless.
That balance is a huge part of what works and appeals about the single, and this quality continues throughout his releases to date. Undoubtedly one to watch, the clarity in particular makes for a refreshing alternative to much of mainstream and even indie hip hop of late. The production too is a big selling point – keeping the right collaborations at the forefront will make all the difference in the long-run.
