Contemplating with Space Age 3000
Little Simz, one of the sharpest solo artists in the UK is also a core part of the Space Age 3000 collective. The group is made up by creatives that grew up together in London and includes photographers, musicians and even a personal trainer. The musical talent Space Age possesses has been recognised by a number of blogs championing great UK music and also by the 2015 SXSW festival organisers.
For me this track is a great display of the quality output being generated by the group. Taken from the most recent The Theory Of… EP, No Landing is produced by in-house beat maker Josh Acre who also features on Little Simz’s corker of an EP (AGE 101: DROP 3|000) alongside the likes of IAMNOBODI and MeLo – X. What impresses me most is the interplay between the rap and RnB styles; both stylish and incredibly smooth. No Landing is brooding and down-tempo, in-keeping with the rest of The EP but definitely the standout track.
