Here in the Booth, we feature a cavalcade of high-caliber cuts every day, but how many of ‘em are truly dope enough to leave listeners spellbound? To answer my own rhetorical question, not very many. On Bugus‘s latest single, however, the DIEMON Records signee takes the opportunity to try out a little Black Magic, and the result is downright bewitching. Russ, this week’s “Top Prospect,” mans the boards on this moody cut, crafting a spare, minor-key guitar backdrop to back the headliner as he chronicles his life struggles in mournful, sing-song verses. Feeling it? Then stay tuned; Black Magic isn’t currently attached to any larger project, but we’ll keep you posted as we learn more about Bugus’ plans.
