Walter Ego has been collaborating with an array of MCs and singers for a hot minute now — Slick Don, Trim, Rawkid, Winter Rose, Gavlyn, Blimes Brixton and more — but now returns with new EP, ‘Seven Star Ball’, comprised of three, hard-as-nails grime instrumentals.
Inspired by Dragon Ball Z, there’s subtle references dotted throughout and a raw energy that mirrors the Super Saiyan charge of Goku from the TV show.
‘Raw’ is the a murky, 808 heavy hitter with Hitchcock-esque strings, ‘Sensu Beans’ follows with a more mindful and melodic edge whilst ‘Goku’s Legend’ closes with a discordant urgency — eerie synth toplines and sparse percussion build up then break out into a thunderous beat.
