SCORCHER – DARK KNIGHT (Official Video)

Grime’s Dark Knight, Scorcher returns with the 3rd single, taken from his critically acclaimed debut album, ‘Concrete Jungle’:

Honestly, I have been waiting for this video since I first heard the track and I must say, the wait was totally worth it, directed by Scorcher himself (for his own ‘Staplehouse’ productions) the video offers the perfect visual to the track, the superhero theme adds a new dimension, with its the fine blend of shots and effects, from the choice of camera to the editing, despite keeping it minimal..the overall result is remarkable, not just for an independant artist but a new director and production company, Staplehouse have really risen to the forefront of music videos, raising the standards with the likes of Jak FrSH (for FrSH entertainment) within the UK, most definitely a positive for the scene.

The track, what could be explained as Scorcher’s anthem, is the Movement emcee at his finest, over a compelling beat (it literally sets the scene), produced by DJ Target (Roll Deep), who provides Skywalker with an emphatic composition on which Scorcher rides the rhythm with ease, lyrically on point and his presence on the track is immense which is the reason why this track possesses such an epic feel. As a fan I always have an opinion when comments begin to fly about certain artists ‘selling out’, but then when it leads to tracks such as this being made..I cannot complain of the so called ‘hater-talk’, a classic altogether…this is a reminder for anyone who feels the need to criticize Scorcher as he continues to grow as an artist and as a person.

Concrete Jungle ..OUT NOW!!

G – FrSH – Afar ft. Tinie Tempah & Deniro from D-Fam (Official Video)

Recently reviewed this track, I highlighted the unique factor that it possesses and the video just emphasizes my point even more, as the video itself is a quality production.

Directed by none other than Jak Frsh, one of the best directors in the country (his portfolio of previous work proves it). The quality is reminiscent of the mainstream standard videos from the So Solid Crew, this however takes things to a higher platform, with the POV (point of view) style sequences, the special effects compliment the visuals as the synths do for the audio. I like the blend of styles within, as it keeps you watching, almost as if you’re there with them. The best thing about this video is that it compliments the song extremely well, just like G-FrSH raises the standard from his last single (Do It), so does this video. With cameos from heavyweights such as Wretch 32 and Scorcher, both G and Tinie Tempah’s performances and the quality of the video itself, Afar should help FrSH entertainment go even higher as they set a new standard.

G-FrSH – Afar ft. Tinie Tempah

G-FrSh returns with the follow up to the club anthem Do It, with Afar, featuring none other than Tinie Tempah, Afar is set to be another hit for G and Frsh Entertainment, the video is coming soon, directed by Jak Frsh so you already know it is going to be something special.

Afar (produced by ‘Sleepz’) is a mid-tempo track, the drum pattern is unique in the way it varies in speed and sound yet fits perfectly together, the real pace of the track is added by the synth, a wavy blend of sounds, the synth remains consistent yet the intensity of it changes which adds depth to the song, throw in some spacey sounds in the right places and you have one of the most innovative and versatile beat I’ve heard in a while.

G-FrSH goes in from the first line,
Some Say I’m Shy, Other People Call It Nervous, Some Say I’m Fly..And I’m Doin’ It On Purpose“,
controlling the tempo smoothly as he continues,
‘Cos She Knows I’m That Guy, And She Knows Who I Are, I’m Sippin’ On My Drink And I’m Just Watchin’ From Afar, I Watch Her While She Laughs, I Watch Her When She Dance, The DJs Playin’ Funky But She Got Me In A Trance..“,
with a greater presence on a track than I have heard from him and G-FrSH is someone who (to me) always had presence and stood out on a song, so it just highlights even more so the improvement he has made in his career as a rapper.

Tinie Tempah has one of the most consistent verses you will have heard in a long time, so good that I’m spoilt for choice as to which line was the best one, definitely a good feature on this hit and even takes it to another level in terms of it’s appeal to a broader range of fans.

Afar is certainly another hit for G-FrSH and FrSH entertainment who continue to deliver quality whether it is with their music, their standard of videos or the FrSH clothing line. After hearing this track, I can’t wait to hear more from the album.
