Loven – “Breathe”

Dubstep, Hip Hop, Rap, Tamil, UK Asian

Score: 8.3

A fascinating effort from Loven provides one of the highlights of 2011. The searing dubstep beat is produced by Charles Bosco (usually a pair of safe hands) alongside Loven, and a one minute intro acts as the perfect curtain-raiser from the Tamil MC to spit. He’s a decent enough lyricist, but in fairness this a track that trades on drama, feeling and intangibles so the words are less important than his voice. Vocally, he comes across as naturally affable and he meshes into the instrumental brilliantly. It all syncs up perfectly, and – helped by a creative video – everyone involved can be mighty proud. And then you realise it’s a free download. One for the radio, gym, club, car, headphones, anywhere, anytime.
