If points are being handed out for cool stage names, Genesis Owusu gets all of them. We checked out his brand new mid tempo sidewinder of a track ‘WUDT’ for EP27. The Aussie funk rapper goes hard on the 80s grove with popping and gregarious synth clips. The underlying structural beat is bulbous and hulking, yet moves with an undisturbed grace. Coquettish keyboards saunter along the scales like some kind of melodic dalliance. Washed out guitars keep the lucidity in check as the other elements of the rhythm seem steeped in renderings without hard edges or defined lines. All the other parts diffuse into each other left unattended it would seem. Small groupings of high pitched keyboards occasionally hatch and flutter away with natural beauty. Owusu, oddly enough, conveys none of these sentiments once he actually starts rapping. Instead his contribution seems more analogous to minimalist hip hop. His low key nonchalance and quicker than expected pace is actually very fun contrasted with the day glow funk of the melody. It’s as if he couldn’t care less that his tone is somewhat antithetical to the beat it overlays. The intro and interlude vocals that employ actual melodic verses for their part merge perfectly with the track. It’s heavenly form elicits nary a hint of friction; it’s smooth as silk. The convergence and divergence of vocal and melodic synchronization is a little odd ball, but that’s Aussie funk rap you. We think? Check out ‘WUDT’ on EP27 of the show on iTunes or Spotify.
