Formerly a Mica Levi collaborator, Coby Sey makes an unusual take on hip-hop. In fact I'm struggling to know if this is the genre I should file this under. It's the sort of way out of leftfield take on electronics that could come from the warped pen of someone like Dean Blunt. It's an unusual sonic soup with spoken words vocals being spat in a rather disjointed manner. This works best when spewed over a lovely tune such as 'Seed (Our Cells Melt)' the haunting and spectral sounds not unlike some of those made by King Krule. On 'Active (Peak)' there are scattered vocals fighting against purely percussive elements - not a tune to be seen but rhythmically fascinating.
This disconcerting juxtaposition is seemingly Cobey Sey's calling card, though I'm sometimes craving a bass line or a haunting synth to add colour and an earworm to remember there's something deeply original here which I hope to see pursued on future recordings.
