Hot on the heels of his highly anticipated return ‘Estranged’ featuring LaMeduza, the West Country-born, London based Rockwell passes the mic to Lewisham-born and bred MC Novelist for his second single of the year ‘Peak.’
An atmospheric and ominous introduction, this club banger is defined by cheeky synth stabs and harmonic variations, increasing the intensity of the track as it progresses whilst providing the perfect sonic texture for Novelist to lay down his inimitable quick-fire bars – hitting at the government for the country’s current state of affairs.
A pertinent and “of the times” socio-political battle cry, Novelist raps: “The price of everything is going up, I’ve had to add another zero to my fee I’ve had enough… the government don’t care about a thing, they don’t want to see or hear a brother win” whilst a distant sample chimes in “The general public in this country know they are being mugged.”
Speaking on the collaboration, Rockwell says: “With a couple of my more recent productions I’ve been trying to strip things back, taking a more considered approach to adding elements and ensuring that everything that makes the cut is integral to the track. I struggle to articulate how much of an honour for me it is to collaborate with Novelist on ‘Peak,’ and from the recording session we did, the bars mirrored the instrumental and came together in an effortless fashion.”
