Somandla Nigel and ENG Creation Take It There

Over a hazy sample, South African artist Somandla Nigel taps into his inner boombapper and delivers some scorching lyricism in his “Take It There,” a new-to-me track featuring ENG Creation from the UK. This one caught my attention because of its tags (“if you like Jay Electronica, you’ll like this”) and the fact that I’m a sucker for chopped soul samples. Everyone involved here did the damn thing and created a short boombap heaven type of track for listeners to enjoy. The only negative I have is that the song clocks in at about 2:30, most of which is the “hook” section. Essentially, it goes intro, 12 or so bars, interlude/hook, then back into the ending verse. I’d love to hear more from the duo, though, so this only whet my musical whistle. Check it out below and remember to support dope music in all its forms.
