Seven‘s first Booth feature found the Swiss pop/R&B singer expressing his frustration with the swiftness of time, explaining, “All I want is my life to go slow.” As nice as it can be to take a break from the daily grind on occasion, though, there’s no escaping the facts: time flies Like a Rocket, and if you don’t hop on board, you’re gonna get left behind. Fittingly, where Go Slow (Remix) was a relaxing afternoon on the beach, this track is a mile-a-minute thrill ride—from Seven, Ph!l!pp Schweidler, and Flo Goetze‘s jittery funk instrumental, densely packed with singsong backing vocals and electronic flourishes, to the artist’s motormouthed chorus, every facet of this track exudes restless energy. Most exhilarating of all is Brooklyn vet AMG‘s breakneck guest verse, which finds him riding the frenetic rhythm like a surfer hanging ten on a tsunami. It’s yet unknown when Like a Rocket (the album) will be touching down globally, but those who simply don’t have the time to wait around can always go the import route—the LP’s out now in Switzerland.
