Conscious Route - Deftly Golden

Edinburgh-based MC, Conscious Route has delivered his latest, 6-track EP, ‘Deftly Golden‘, produced by Forest DLG aka Chemo aka Telemachus. The EP opens with the straight Hip Hop of ‘Trojan‘ ft Kryptik before ‘Portals‘ brings a deeper lyrical feel as Conscious Route unleashes a flurry of political wordplay calling out prejudice, racism, government, and more.

Local Healers step up with a strong lyrical assist on the relaxed, jazz-inflected ‘Chordz‘ as Chris Greive blesses the track with some live trombone before Micall Parknsun drops through to trade lines on the brooding ‘Villified‘.

Joe Publik is the final guest on the EP with the insistent, string blessed bragging rights of ‘Code Red‘ cuts by iconic UK turntablist, DJ Jabba Tha Kut on the track. The EP closes with ‘Driver‘, as Conscious Route flows across a drum and bass back-drop, with some deft wordplay that speaks of his lyrical confidence.

This EP maintains a strong Hip Hop edge even as it drifts across styles while Conscious Route shows why he has become such an established name in UK Hip Hop. The EP has already received support from BBC Introducing with “Trojan” gaining track of the week and more recently “Portals” spun on Phoebe I-H and Shreen Cutkelvin Scotland show.

Release date: 06.10.2022
