Strizzy Strauss reveals the second single ‘Hieroglyfics’ from his upcoming debut album
‘Trust The Process’ .
Hip Hop producer Sik Sense takes the helm on this one,
laying down a jazz tinted piano driven beat with punchy boom bap drum patterns. There’s
also a melodic quality to be heard in Strauss’s rhyme style, coupled with the slow-and-
steady boom bap beat and it’s a recipe for a hypnotic head-nod.
The track speaks on the adversities experienced growing up in a single parent home, around
neglected neighbourhoods and under constant pressure to be drawn into the mud. Having been “to hell, back and got the bucket hat”, Strauss describes the ever-present impetus to swerve the surrounding negative influences and move toward a higher calling.
From a purely personal perspective (and it is my blog, so it counts!) LOUD HORIZON has not in the past really embraced the Hip Hop / Rap scene, concentrating more on punk, rock, reggae etc.
But you like what you like – no boundaries and all that.
And I like this. A lot!
