Booth newcomer SciFi Stu may enjoy fantastic tales of possible futures (at least, I assume so from his stage name), but his take on hip-hop is refreshingly retro. On new single and album title track Thru Life, the Scottish beatsmith showcases a style steeped in the mellow vibes of 1990s boom-bap. Artfully-chopped piano/guitar loops and a simple, yet effective bassline accompany contemplative guest bars from yU, Boog Brown and Hus Kingpin. Chinch 33 mans the wheels of steel on the record’s hook, flipping samples from Pete Rock‘s Take You There, Hi-Tek‘s The Sun God and other classic joints. Has this throwback banger piqued your interest? Then stay tuned; Stu’s Thru Life LP has yet to be assigned a solid drop date by the HiPNOTT Records brass, but we’ll keep you supplied with the latest singles leading up to its eventual release.
