Swiss-born and London-based Zingg is a rising rapper who has that extra layer of confidence and competitiveness that sets him apart from most. With his laid back style and riveting lyrical delivery, he is a new school musician who adds some color to this dull year on ‘Psychedelics’.
Signed to London’s Red Rokket Management, this is a lyricist who has big dreams and even bigger goals. He has a Post Malone type of style and his influences include Drake and Travis Scott. His aim is to be on their level and on this single; his intentions are so clear with a visually stimulating track that satisfies immensely.
The swirling whirlpool type of start soon brings us to hear his flow and this is a driving force of energy that is curiously catchy. The fishbowl of musicians that are trapped is vast but you get the feeling that he is on a team that have an ear for talent that succeeds. You soon start to sway your head around as he ventures out with his vast vocal ability that you turn up to hear each word.
This is a story of that crush that wants to be with you so bad but you are taking things slow, careful not to fall in love too quickly. You have been together before and things turned hot but you don’t want to get burnt so are keeping the cold water on for now.
The London to Basel time-traveler Zingg could be the voice of the future as he makes each verse seem so effortless. He possesses that freshness that gives him that rare top shelf type of rap appeal on ‘Psychedelics’.
