Manchester rapper Sweets goes for an experimental and nonconforming sound on his new release titled "I'm Not Coming Home." The hip-hop record is gritty and dark with its sizzling synths, crunchy rousing drums, and weird sound design that sounds like the score for a sci-fi horror flick. Sweets however find home within the production and come with all guns blazing as he delivers fiery bar with focused anger. As a rising act finding his way around the system, Sweets leaves nothing to chance and lets us know that he is going for gold and nothing is going to stop him.
The cherry on top of "I'm Not Coming Home" is the dynamic production that slowly rises in energy and switches to a tempo drop on the chorus section. The use of laidback melodic runs on that part works well too but gives the track a soothing change that is unexpected.
Sweets was actually born and raised in Newcastle but now based in Manchester and has been working runs as a performer and now fully focused on his craft, he joined forces with Soul Kitchen Recordings to help bring his dreams to life. Sweets is currently working on what will be his debut EP set for release later this year. He is also set to play Dot To Dot amongst other shows this year.
