XV-Hoop Dreams

A little off the pace on this one, for which I apologise. Dropped last week at the tailend of XV’s rapid fire releases, this is another show of diversity as XV goes for a motivational style on Hoop Dreams.

Vizzy comes with an enjoyable storytelling style on this effort, nicely detailing a story of someone with basketball ambitions, and as expected with such a title and subject, there are plenty of basketball references interspersed within the lyrics for the NBA fans out there. The production is an easygoing blend of ambience and intensity, with atmospheric synths and samples placed alongside a sharp, crashing percussion, combining for an accurate capture of the thoughtful yet ambitious nature of the lyrics. Another good effort from Vizzy, and hopefully there’s more to come soon.
