Rapper Oyakhire takes things up a gear with latest release ‘Lay Low‘.
Prepare to get completely lost in the track’s intoxicating production with a delicious layering of new and old school aspects. There’s a simple, pure form to both the performance and the arrangement, but it’s the Scottish-based artist’s consistent reinvention that showcases his sublime potential.
There’s a familiarity about the approach in his songwriting but there are elements within the bones of this that make it feel wildly refreshing on Scottish soil.
With a commentary on his peers within his lyrics and a sonic diarising of his craft, it’s clear he has foresight. Bring on the next chapter.
