With a style that was heralded as "more thought-out than played-out" by the ever artistic magazine Hunger TV, London emcee Adian Coker recently shipped over "Suicide Drive", a fresh track about rising fame and making it to great heights before it's too late. While this type of struggle story is well-known and sometimes overdone, Adian's subtle yet unmistakable approach adds an unexpected element to a kind of tale that usually has a spewing YOLO flow. Fellow Londoner Last Japan seems to have recognized the slick consideration Adian gave this track, inserting a key beat into this locked down rap. Last Japan has created a seemingly visceral remix, an accompaniment you might confuse for the original. It begins with a minimal, tapping electro beat, but the sublow quickly moves in to take the track to the dark dirty basement of sound. This strong, sophisticated production is perfect for a nighttime roll down the block.
