Phoelix was first introduced as the producer of Saba’s last track release, “Soap Box”. Phoelix re-introduces himself on his first single — “Buddha” — through his songwriting ability with his own vocals.
- The biggest question going into listening to “Buddha“: what kind of music should we expect from Phoelix?
- The biggest question after listening to “Buddha“: did Saba breathe during his verse?
Saba’s verse was very dope — crazy flow and many great quotables. But as dope as Sab was, he didn’t necessarily outshine Phoelix — which says a lot about Phoelix’s impact on the song. I have never been a fan of synthesized vocals but once I got past that and listened to the lyrics, I was very impressed by Phoelix’s obvious talent.
I am definitely looking forward to what else Phoelix has in-store, as a producer and as a solo artist. More of the same? Or hopefully some variety?
