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!!
