Featuring vocals by Janelle Collins and lyrics by Sadat X and A.G., “Sunshine” is an uplifting track that looks at the good things this life has to offer with lyrics: “All afternoon I’m great, This feeling is hard to duplicate”, “I’m around people that prosper, Real general meet to confer”, “now I know there’s a light in my life far greater than a husband or wife”
“The follow up to his incredible 2011 Lunatick Records release; Beats, Blunts & Burgers Volume 2 sees Icelandic producer Abstrakt Idea take a more electronic approach with his music, whilst still retaining the signature boom-bap sound which has gained him accolades from renowned Hip-Hop producers and artists including Chief (Feelinmusic), Charmingly Ghetto and many more.
Entirely instrumental, with the exception of one track featuring legendary emcee Sadat X of Brand Nubian, Abstrakt has once again showcased why he is one of the most in demand names in the European beat scene, the heavy-hitting drums of tracks such as Up High are juxtaposed perfectly with the laid-back, smooth style that he has exhibited so well in the past with tracks like Madagascar. He even shows his range with Casino Royale, a production much more reminiscent of classic Chicago house than Abstrakt’s typical Hip-Hop style.”
