Featuring a collection of tracks that could be appeasing to nostalgics of the old-school, London-based rapper/producer REDD TUNES slaps down his first project of the year, entitled ‘The Sickness.’
With loops of chill-out sounds that could be easily associated with Fila high tops (unlaced, of course), slick tracksuits complete with thick gold chains, this set pays homage to the real art of britcore and also expresses the concerns of the commercialisation of its parent – hip-hop – suppressing the realism of the sub-genre.
But there’s no chance of that as REDD TUNES and featured artists on this EP, are on a mission to keep the britcore vibe alive. The Sickness EP is a strong reminder that music is an extension of one’s expression – and not a commodity.
This set is definitely worth a trail; check it out here
