Eyec JaĆ© – “So Dark” featuring Emmanuel

Burban, Hip Hop, R&B, Rap, UK, UK Asian

Score: N/A

Being the kind of wanky review site we are, it’s sometimes easy to forget that some of the artists we cover are: a) Sinfully young; and b) Human after all. Eyec released “Happy Midnight” a good while ago now, and at an extremely tender age. To fans and DJ’s, it’s tempting to look at rappers in binary code alone. And so, it’s great when a song comes along to jolt you out of that slump. While the nature of “So Dark” leaves us a bit reticent to issue any kind of criticism its way (hence no score), the song is more about showing your scars and attempting to basically just find the fucking lightswitch in pitch black darkness. Having gone through really bad periods ourselves, it’s important to recognise that – cliche or not – there IS a light at the end of the tunnel. (Reviewed by Rahul)
