CITY - PHOENIXX (Ft. DREAMZ)

With a new artist name change, Phoenixx pulls up with Dreamz to apply pressure with a new charged up and playful release, “City” that certainly entices due to its raw, rapid fire street edge. As the instrumental begins, eerie, haunting synths combine with singular piano keys before the beat drops, and clattering percussion along with thunderous drums enter the scene. The production provides an already elevated tempo that Phoenixx simply emphasises on with his usual vitality playing along with the beat and bouncing throughout with his words in an evidently effortless fashion proving just how tenured he is. His flows are uncharacteristic but as smooth as can be, and the confidence mixed with the fast pace in his delivery truly captures the essence of the genre. And as he goes on to speed his words up to stick with the rhythm of the song, his ad-libs are even more expressive, adding even more hecticness to the offering. Dreamz enters the song for a quick verse of his own and while short, it carries with it a more somber demeanor and a much needed cool down before the song’s final climax. The given instrumental is impressive enough and carries a 90s flavor to it, but the way in which their exceptionally mastered delivery is applied to the beat itself, is nothing short of ideal.
