Bashy – Life (Trailer)

Mr Bish Bash Bosh himself, has released the trailer for his forthcoming video for the track Life.

This might just be my favourite track of his critically acclaimed album Catch Me If You Can (In Stores NOW).
Bashy shines the brightest when he gets serious with his topics, Life sounds like the realest thing he has ever written, touching on real situations with his witty and emphatic charisma.

The thing that seperates Bashy from the start is that coming from a Genre dominated with stereotyping and surrounded by negative hype, he was always a diverse artist, he was not taken seriously as he was not continously speaking on violence, he was more creative and broad, that however became his advantage as he stood out among the violent, tough life concepts which have become generic with Grime. Life is the definition of Grime, I already am dissapointed as I fear that it will not receive the real acknowledgement that such a strong and meaningful track deserves.

Without giving away too much, the trailer manages to grip you, I am certainly looking forward to what could (along with his double Mobo Nominations) be Bashy’s official entrance as one of the leading mainstream artists in the UK.

Bashy – Your Wish Is My Command ft. H-Boogie

Bashy - Catch Me If You Can (OUT NOW)

Bashy - Catch Me If You Can (OUT NOW)

From the first listening of his new album ‘Catch Me If You Can’ it was evident that Bashy was trying to make a point, in an attempt to satisfy everyone and broaden his range of audience he created an eclectic album, those that followed Bashy’s rise obviously knew that the album would not be a dominantely grime album, he has always stood out for being witty and entertaining in a comical way, he sustained his presence in grime with the track (and video) Ransom (featuring Wretch 32 & Scorcher). Bashy then created a mini-anthem in the form of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?. Your Wish Is My Command featuring H-Boogie (Estelle’s sister) was one of the tracks that stood out in the album as able to cross-over, its merged sounds and styles allowed it to cross over into different genres for more people to enjoy.

The beat itself is a techno meets funk saying hi to pop somewhere along the journey, Bashy gives the track it’s urban relevance, it is obvious that Bashy intended to create a feel-good fun song and I can see this doing well, as for the video, I think it’s funny, it is different, it has comical value, it stands out and should not have any trouble receiving play on TV, the track itself should become a regular on radio, fans sometimes do not understand how hard it is to please everyone, some fans would like to see urban artists continue to make ‘underground’ music, but in order to be successful as an artist and gain mainstream credibility, they have to extend their range, Dizzee Rascal and Tinchy Stryder for example. With ‘Your Wish Is My Command’, Bashy has tried to create an overall feeling, it is urban, both artists represent urban alternative, Bashy is not singing, he is rapping, it is just a creative piece of expression, I personally visioned a futuristic video for the song, in all honesty I do not think the current video fully justifies the track, but it is hilarious to watch.

Bashy has always been ‘different’ coming up as an artist, where most emcees would stick to underground then make the pop transition, Bashy has always had these elements to him so it is no surprise. Your Wish Is My Command will do well for him, he boasts a lively character and the video portrays that well.
