EP Review: Poets Of The Dark Scrolls – Redd Tunes

After claiming the blog’s Album of the Month title with previous EP, ‘The Sickness’, REDDTUNE bounces right back with his latest set, ‘Poets Of The Dark Scrolls.’

Featuring yet another stellar lineup, ‘Poets Of The Dark Scrolls’ continues to delve into keeping Britcore alive, by bringing on the laid-back boom-bap vibe…and a few extras thrown in, which includes a boisterous, reggae-fused introduction, a guitar-drenched production plus a straight-up urban forceful drive that ends the set on a high.

Although REDDTUNE remains loyal to his beloved subgenre of hip-hop, ‘Poet Of The Dark Scrolls’ sees London producer/rapper and his army of collaborators go at the deep end and really experiment with various genres that could potentially appeal to a wider audience.

Worth taking a peek…sample and download the EP FOR FREE here.
