R U Hip 2 the Revolution (digital single)

Review by Gary Hill

The mix of sounds on this tune is intriguing. It has a lot of old school texture, but also modern edges. This is fresh and timeless at the same time.

This review is available in book (paperback and hardcover) form in Music Street Journal: 2020  Volume 5. More information and purchase links can be found at: garyhillauthor.com/Music-Street-Journal-2020.

Track by Track Review
R U Hip 2 the Revolution

There is a real classic rock groove to this piece. The I love the guitar fills on the number. The whole piece has a "protest music" vibe to it. As much as this piece is rooted in the past, that gets altered when it works out to a real rap movement later. Whatever you call this, it has a hopeful vibe and is an effective number. The tune seems like its winding down to end, but then organ rises up to create the basis of the closing instrumental section.
