Its been 5 months since we heard from gruff but heavenly vocalist; Blackmagic whose ability to easily fuse said vocals with live strings results in deliveries that sit in permanent spots in his listeners mind. Evidenced in the elasticity of Repete; a chart topping track released way back in 2013 but still controls our minds with its now retro narrative.
This month, as the year draws to an end and the calmness of the seasons turns brittle, Blackmagic switches tempos and relapses into the tropical season in an upbeat dreamlike escape to his subconscious clouded by love themed thoughts in a rastafarian tinged monologue titled; Bad Intentions (De De De) produced by Xela.
The percussive piano driven track rife with tempered bass, which is a reflective ode to a tumultuous relationship with the track’s main muse isn’t essentially disparate from his usual artistry. The Afrocentric artiste is found utilizing the Xela’s instrumentals by smooth talking over it with lyrics that grind their way into our minds as usual in almost 5 minutes.
