Verbals by A to the L
Loop Troop – Fly Away (Burning Heart )
The lead single from this Swedish crew’s 2nd album “The Struggle Continues” is a supremely jazzy affair which breaks down the trials and tribulations of life on the road as a successful Hiphop artist – living out of a suitcase, flitting from hotel to hotel, catching flight after flight – it ain’t all glamourous ya know. Embee’s production here features fine layers of muted trumpets, tinkling piano keys, and sassy female vocals, while Cosmic and Promoe sound decidely more American than European, though that aint necessarily a bad thing. If the rest of the LP sounds like this then you could be in for a treat.
RATING: 8 / 10
