SINGLE: Spooky (ft. Dos Boy) ARTIST: Peezo
In a bittersweet outing, the newest release from Aussie hip-hop artist Peezo (aka Ryan Peters) is a dark and moody trap-tinged banger that ultimately pays homage to the late artist and his signature chilled flow.
In collaboration with best mates Dos Boy jumping on a verse and Agnus on production duties, Peezo's trademark blend of old school American flow and modern Aussie hip hop is on full display in 'Spooky', with a subdued menace sprawling beneath ricocheting electronic beats and the Byron-born MC's icy stream steadying the ship.
There's not a huge amount of deviation from the gloomy tones established in the first few seconds - but there's something inherently engaging at the core of 'Spooky' and Peezo's slick and somber delivery, a fact agonisingly amplified by his untimely passing.
It is with an undeniably heavy heart that Peezo's best mates are forging ahead with the release of Peezo's planned upcoming album 'Cheap Thrills', and they have also set up a Pozible campaign to raise money for his family for the expenses they've faced with the loss of their beloved friend, relative, brother and son. Check out 'Spooky' below, or else hop over to Spotify.
