Reliably informed

Igg’s Natural Symbiosis was one of the standout demos of 2019: snake-charming rap that spilled bright colours all over the brain. With a knack for producing music that seems to physically move, his latest offering also boasts clever rhymes – “It’s all just so obscene to me / Maybe I just need a complete change of scenery / Like living in a city seeking to locate the greenery” – and brings added humour in the deep ghost-wobble of its lowest male vocal, and the sharp, shiny-pure bell that rings in a note of winking satire throughout.

The song itself rocks like a bed, or a DIY wagon with loose wheels. It’s lo-fi and slick at the same time, and smart and weird is never a bad combination either.

Released: 19.03.21
