The UK emcee Dazzle returns to uplift his community with the powerfully Hip Hop/Reggae infused album ”Kingship”.
The London artist impresses mightily and starts in menacing mood with ”Already (Intro)”. This sets up the game and then it’s the Reggae soaked ”Everybody Talkin”. I really like the buzz on this one and it flows through the speaker to get me listening intently.
”London” heads through the whole city and stories of his life in the majestic city. This has a grimy UK feel to it and this is probably my favorite track. ”Foolish” is next up and this starts with some wonderful female vocals that I would like to find out more about. Dazzle soon swoops in and pulls out his bars that sinks through the track.
The album is complemented by the remaining tracks ”In My Head”, ”Special”, ”Roll Up”, ”Dangerous”, ”Real”, ”Just Another Day”, ”Know Now” and the remix for ”Immortal”. I enjoyed ”Special” the most here as it has a familiar sound and the song is one to groove with all might.
Dazzle certainly knows how to put on a show and this album is a highly skilled produced effort that gets me in the mood. This is one of the UK’s shining lights in the Hip Hop scene.
