The first ever DiSCOVERY Track Of The Week is awarded to Skepta, Young Adz and Chip with 'Sin City', a piece of music which forms just one element of the trio's first project as a collective, and vastly popular new album - 'Insomnia'.
For a freshly formed groups' content to sound right, it is imperative that each individual member has their eyes fixated on the same vision and does not lose sight of their powerful, unified goal. In Skepta, Young Adz and Chip's case, this is paramount as their polar opposite style's could, if fused without thought, create an unsavoury mash of noise. Thankfully for fans, this is absolutely not the case.
Released on the 27th of March 2020, Insomnia consists of 12 expertly composed pieces of music, each with its own, highly unique sound. With each 12 segments of the Insomnia fruit leaving listeners energised, it was tough to allocate a victor, however, 'Sin City' on this occasion, sits on the DiSCOVERY throne.
With a plethora of distractions pulling potential fans' attention in multiple directions, for me, the most critical phase of a piece of music is the initial 30 seconds. Rightly or wrongly so, in the current climate, a song will be skipped and never listened to again, should the opening not captivate it's targets.
The powerful Skepta opens the Sin City relay race and does an outstanding job in setting the scene for the rest of the Insomnia team before seamlessly passing the baton on to Chip, who does not disappoint. Just 23 seconds into Sin City, following Skepta's effortless delivery of the line "I had big waps, hurt my wrist from the kick back", you know that the only control you are going to utilise on your phone, is the volume. This is why Sin City takes gold.
