First Impressions: Electronica and Hip-Hop Collide On Sam Sparro's "Corrected"

Monday, April 5, 2010

With a song like "Black and Gold", Sam Sparro is going to have a hell of a time following it up. In fact, he's going to have a hell of a time following up his 2008 self-titled debut, because it was filled with epic synthesized funkatron tunes that just blasted through the speakers and were infectious to the ears. Yet, he's brave and willing to give it a shot to follow the album up, as over the weekend a brand new track surfaced that is to be the first single from his as-yet-untitled-and-under-wraps-at-the-moment sophomore record. 

The track, "Corrected", does refresh the brain molecules, with it's shrill synth work that mirrors 1980's hip-hop backbeats (courtesy of production by Dutch producing team Mason) not to mention the robust inclusion of DMC from legendary Run DMC. Mainly this song features, DMC, with Sparro contributing his raspy soulful drawl in the mix. It's a bit dicey in spots, possibly because this may not be a finished product, though from the sound of things something is bubbling up quite interestingly. Sample the radio edit after the cut.
