about

Track #8 from critically acclaimed third album ‘Shout’, ‘City Song’ is Eli Escobar at his refined best. Demonstrating his unique ability to create musical landscapes around a house template, here his reimagining of the track builds layers of context around vocal chops and urban noise, influenced by early Ice Cube albums and how they use “ambiance and sound effects to paint a picture of the story he was trying to tell”. ‘City Song’ is the moment where the album’s spirits begin to raise, and ‘City Song Part 2 (Peace, Love and Harmony)’ finds yet more hope with filtered snatches of groove. Accompany Eli’s New Version of Part 2, Ron Basejam (aka Jim Baron of Crazy P) goes funkier with richer bass and soul claps, whereas German duo COEO take a refreshingly different direction with their ‘City Song’ remix, punctuating their production with piano and percussion.
