Atwood Bookie goes hard musically and conceptually on this latest release. Playa 2 is a contemporary hip-hop anthem that’s fairly unforgettable once it’s hit the airwaves around you. What begins as a unique and ambient soundscape, dark and intriguing, mysterious and appealing for its delicate aura, soon evolves to become a rhythmically memorable rap hit with a surprisingly complex structure. The whole thing continues to throw in curveballs whenever you get complacent, so while there are undoubtedly threads that connect the experience and make it recognizable, there’s also plenty that you’re unlikely to expect.
Atwood Bookie is a talented hip-hop artist who is hoping to make his mark in the industry. His performance pours through, soaked in passion and confidence. You don’t question the weight or strength of the bars or the vocal delivery, you can hear the intention and power behind it all, and this again contrasts with that somewhat gentle nature of the cinematic soundscape in the distance. His passion to make music and hard work to create something unique makes him special as an artist. Many love him for that reason and already there’s an audience who are waiting for him to release more music. A single listen is all you really need for the track to leave its mark, but you will play it over and over to savor its amazing vibe.
