MC Solomon from UK unites with Bombay’s very own Shaikhspeare to drop visuals for “Bombay To London”. The energetic hype track serves as the title track for their upcoming collaboration EP “Bombay To London”.
The beat for the track is produced by Asia Minor. It samples female vocals in the hook with the trap elements which makes the perfect combination of urban with classic desi sound. The track was recorded at Analogue Sounds Ltd.
“Straight from the streets out of London, Man of mine bring down the thunder, Banging a big drum for Asia, Zoned out stuck in a dub beat Jamaica, Poles out get in the dancers Malaysia, Thugs out get all the guns out of cages, Night train head to the south Bombay lokal real recognise the real over the jokers”, MC Solomon kicks off his verse.
“Straight from the streets outta Bombay, I make it rain call me “Tansen”, Resonate in your brain like “Om”, every word that I write in the poems”, Shaikhspeare kicks in straight with bars.
