Track Review

RobenX – Pure

THIS is how to articulate the intensity of emotions.

What starts with a sensitive and defensive piano backing quickly changes gears with those energetic and intense rap vocals indicating an unbelievable amount of emotion hidden inside the soul of american multitalent Robdarius Brown, better known as RobenX. This is not ‘just’ another rap song, it’s a raw and direct statement that cannot be overheard.

Within seconds the song proves without a doubt that music is best expressed if you lived through what you are trying to transmit. Taken off the recently released album ‘The Mental Interlude’, this tune contains so much addictive intensity. You’ll find a ton of core emotions in ‘Pure’. There’s aggression, frustration, anger, desperation, melancholy and a ton of in-betweens as the lyrics are fired in this signature way. Some might say that the backing is held a bit too minimal for some parts of the song, but I think this is rather an element that makes you focus on the importance of the message than on a rich and full backing that sounds well-rounded, but takes your attention away from the songs’ intention. With RobenX, it’s all about delivering the message.
