Thoughts In Retrospect
Thoughts In Retrospect is the first single from Rinse's debut artist signing, Beezy. A fantastic lyricist whose ability to paint vivid images with a bold and vulnerable potency has endeared him to producers and fans across the globe. Although this is his first proper introduction to a mainstream audience, Beezy has already cut his teeth with the cream of British producers, including Skream, Benga, Plastician and Coki, self-releasing two albums and numerous mix tapes and giving them away as free downloads. "Thoughts In Retrospect," produced by Benga, is a light-hearted dally back to Reece Smith's cheeky nipper days: chasing girls, getting up to mischief and generally having fun with mates. "Snapshots Of A Glass Portal" is an altogether more somber offering, the tone set by minor keys and sparse drums from Distance, over which Beezy delivers a morbidly fascinating 4-minute monologue so rich in its description, the listener is compelled to see the stark point of view directly through his eyes.
