Producer Odd Numbers returns with his new release “Uncut Gems” which sees him collaborating with Dublin Rapper Fynch. Bolstered by Odd Numbers’ soulful and sombre soundscape made up of moody strings, solemn piano riffs and lively drum grooves, FYNCH proceeds to share some reflective rhymes about his childhood and the good old days when life wasn’t so complex. Armed with his laidback and unassuming flow, Fynch takes time to wallow in good memories that give him joy and he totally discards anything negative that can cloud his mind. Lines like “Smooth and juicy in it, ain’t no demons of Lucy in it/ but I spit loosely with it, and I can speak truthfully in it” are delivered in a spoken word timing and accentuate Fynch’s true feelings.
“Uncut Gems” is taken from Odd Numbers’ forthcoming EP Colours, and provides a further glimpse into his exploration of Jazz-Hop and Neo-Soul.
“Uncut Gems” follows the successful release of three singles from Odd Numbers’ upcoming EP: “Parkgate Street” (feat. Graham), “Born in a Barn” (feat. Flynn Johnson), and “Love Me, Hate Me” (feat. Wallfella). With each track, the producer showcases his dedication to honing a fresh sound, taking cues from multiple eras of Hip-Hop.
