- Confidence Boost / Saying by Trimbal
2 reviews. Add your own review.
Proving once again that James Blake is a lot better than his later solo soul-lite ‘work’ would suggest, this collaboration between himself and ex-Roll Deep member Trimbal is a wonderfully oddball slice of grime/garage with your archetypal sarf Laaandon vocal inflections being twisted and turned all over the place, pitchshifted and generally fecked about with whilst underneath some burbling compli-dubstep fills the spaces between.
On the flip there’s a much more urban sounding tune with hand claps and burbling synths creating dark dangerous late night dubstep which battles with half-spoken, half-sung words from Trim. Odd, eerie but thoroughly enjoyable.
7/10 Luke Knight Customer review, 12th November 2015
This is a good tune.
Trimbal could never make a beat like this and there aren't any producers in the Grime genre with the skills of James Blake not even close. So hearing a Grime MC on a more interesting complex beat like this is a refreshing rarity that probably won't happen again now Grime has dramatically declined.
James Blake has mixed the song almost to be a crescendo at the beginning not reaching its peak until the very near end.
This building crescendo along with the vocals by Trim which are processed more and more prominently by Blake who added harmonies creates a thick warm sounding track which will definitely be stuck in your head a whole after hearing it.
All in all definitely worth a buy sounds especially good on the 12" vinyl single.
