jefff - R U Hip 2 the Revolution
(Conch Town Music / 21 August 2020)
R U Hip 2 the Revolution combines spoken word and song in a hip hop-ish vein. Its strengths are a hypnotic rhythm and jefff's expressive vocals.
The track builds in momentum, with anthemic chord progressions that ramp up the intensity. It's danceable, with a nice melodic keyboard line.
The song's somewhat reminiscent of Marcy Playground's Sex & Candy - an irresistible rhythm and clever lyrics, although here, they're about global politics and not a furtive hook-up.
Listen for yourself.
