Wretch 32 ft. Example: 'Unorthodox'

By
Wretch 32 ft. Example 'Unorthodox'
Released on Sunday, Apr 17 2011

Many artists of late have been vocal about the dominance of synth-laden party pop in the charts - the very same people predicting/yearning for the return of real instruments for 2011. Now that Adele has muscled the genre back into vogue, it appears a new trend has finally been set - though truth be told we weren't expecting grime MC and rapper Wretch 32 to be the first to jump on it.

"I got a good vibe/ I ain't trying to be bait with my hook lines," Wretch swaggers with rapper-turned-singer Example over thrumming beats and funk-infused guitars that sample the Stone Roses' 1989 hit 'Fools Gold' - proving there is still a place for a bit string plucking while maintaining a musical relevance in today's chart. "We don't follow no crowd, they follow us," they claim on the bouncy, summery and catchy-as-cholera chorus. Like with any new and exciting fad, let's hope it's in their droves.
