Rap artist and performer Coe stands out for his inspired lyrical deliver and masterful flow. His talent is absolutely apparent in the context of his brand new studio release, “Pushin Buttons”. The song has a very modern edge feel, with trap influences and a great production value that makes me think of artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Drake, Kanye West or Joey Bada$$, just to mention but a few.
It all starts from a well-calibrated set of 808-style samples: the unmistakable drum machine beat is powerful and direct, cutting through the mix with grit and power. The vocals are certainly strong enough to sustain the weight of the music, allowing the song to really stand out.
What I really like about “Pushin Buttons” is that the song as an unmistakably modern feel, but Coe’s influences are also related to old school masters of the genre, making for a really innovative and direct approach. The production is truly outstanding, as the track feels balance and powerful in every way – from the deep impact of the drum beats to the melodic elements, pushing through the mix with quixotic conviction.
