The recent release “Bussin’” by “Sors” is a track that stands entirely unique in both the writing style and the musicality of it all. The beat that kicks it off sets a great vibe, then what follows is a fairly unexpected and brilliantly unusual melody and progression of chords. The music and the vocals stand together perfectly within the track, and at times – it’s almost a hip-hop meets rap kind of musical art, which is incredible; a winning fusion of inspiration and creativity if ever there was one.
There’s no complacency within the music, the lyrics are pretty out there, as is that melody in the verses, and then quite cleverly – when it gets to the chorus section, the promised land itself, I suppose – everything becomes a little clearer. The mist settles, in a way, and so you get this track that incorporates alternative art and freedom, with radio worthy, crowd captivating songwriting. Really impressive.
The whole thing is great, the vocals add a beautiful amount of power to the anthemic and hip hop feel of the whole thing. The storytelling is superb, as are some of the rhymes – a really nice array of clever wordplay and unexpected lyrical expression. It’s a great lead vocal as well, a really strong sounding voice with a confident and raw edge to it. On the whole, this one’s a track you can turn up loud and get lost in – jump around until the weekend hits, or catch a last grasp of the holidays by dancing the night away. Really good vibes throughout.
“Bussin’” is an equally joyful and beautifully hip hop track. Once again, perhaps even more so this time, those riffs are phenomenal – all-encompassing and far surpassing much of the rest of whatever the hip-hop world is up to. This feels like where it’s at. The music is a little quieter at the start of this track, so you really get soaked up by the soundscape – the distorted rhythm and that smooth-sounding solo part work so well together, which I feel is quite rare – often there is a bit of a clash when musicians try to add two very similar parts to a track. But that’s just not the case here, quite the contrary in fact – it’s awesome, plus the vocals really take the front seat in this one, so you can hear every great quality, every crackle of realness, every ounce of emotion and talent.
