It’s widely accepted that hip-hop, rap, trap, R&B and EDM in general has been borrowing extensively from reggae music for years. Protoje completes this cycle by looping it all back in. He provides singles such as ‘Bout Noon’ that have extensive appeal across many genres and cement his position as an international star.

Right from the very first listen this track feels instantly familiar and haunting, combining hip hop influenced drums with a spacious and dreamy dub sensibility. It drifts along, hypnotically punctuated with sparse keys and deep reggae bass and pic guitar. Providing the perfect backdrop to Protoje’s trademark vocal delivery, fusing elements of rap with reggae chant and heartfelt vocals and lyrics.

This compelling track will be included in his fourth album, anticipated later this year. Could he top ‘Ancient Future’…watch this space.
