Narst links up with D Double E & Griminal for striking new song ‘No Smoke’, each landing with killer verses to stamp their authority on the track. It’s got the snarl, and what I mean by that the beat is sinister and inviting, meaning there is only one outcome that needs to happen, BARS. This is what happens next.
Introducing the tune, Narst unloads his assertiveness, directing his words to show there isn’t any playing, but done in a way that is skilful and with a bite to his flow that works very well with the instrumental. Next to follow is the legend that is D Double E, adding his unique delivery and masterful wordplay. Then to wrap it up, Griminal another class act who brings a stellar take to the table. A star studded line-up indeed.
‘No Smoke’ brings a level of intensity, drive and punchiness which is refreshing and a sound of old which is beginning to make a resurgence and I’m here for it. Not that it ever went away, as there are many movers and shakers in the scene… but I think people are ready for this cyclical behavioural shift. This is one for those looking for an early morning commute song to kick them into gear, or a reliable workout record to bring performance levels to a new height or just somebody who wants to chill out and listen to bars.
