“Ignite” is an epic, intense few minutes of music and lyricism by the ever-talented “Malitia.” His music is amazing, attractive and once you listen to the same we are pretty sure you want to listen to the same more and more. However, rolling out alongside this, progressing and evolving in a completely fresh and unique way, is the gradually unraveling and then suddenly exploding musicality of it all. Also the song is produced by Biggs Productions.
Ignite is an important song, and the way in which the topic has been approached – the softly spoken yet powerful expression, the unwavering addressing of facts, the sheer sense of possibility and optimism – is inspiring to listen to, and it’s enjoyable; it lifts you up, reminds you that you’re not alone, that there is plenty to live for. It gives you a go-to moment of escapism that comes through as absolutely genuine.
Structurally there’s a whole lot to appreciate about this release, and that adds a lot of value. Rather than rapping over some disconnected backdrop, or making things overly personal or inaccessible, the audience has been considered at every step, yet not to the disadvantage of the track’s individuality. It’s a perfect balance. The intensity is heavy and the personality is clear, the music builds and builds, develops and evolves, captivating you at every step and drawing you in further and further until the soundscape erupts into this manic and rhythmic.
The rhythm and overall backdrop to the piece have a fairly simplistic and even organic sound for the most part. The music accompanying the beat, the retro keys, the gentle use of notes, the slightly attractive vocal melody playing out behind that which brings the lyrics – it all makes for a captivating and unexpectedly awesome few minutes of listening. The artist’s leading voice has a classic and joyful tone and performance style. This touch of realness is incredibly personal, yet it’s approached in a way that welcomes you into the mix, that reaches out to you as a listener, and in many cases, the lyrics or certain lines connect with you specifically, with your own experiences.
