Spark Houston emerges with five-track radiant EP 'RED'
Toronto based artist Spark Houston is set to take the hip-hop world by storm. Having recently released his first EP in a string of releases all specifically orientated around colours, 'RED' speaks volumes to people feeling motivated and ready for whatever is around the corner. Composed of five tracks
Going into depth about the release, Houston shares, “Red is my competition, my drive, my energy and my bravado. In polychrome as a whole project (split amongst three EPS - Red, Blue, and Green) Red is the manic high before the crash of the depressing blue. Red is me rapping as well as anyone alive, knowing entirely that there is no human force that can stop me. Red is high octane. Red is lewd”
In the hook when the line "Red mine, red mine, red yours" is said, it's an invitation for all of us, both myself and the listeners, to soak in the atmosphere of my intensity. The pitch shifted voice is used as a motif on red, hinting that, although it feels good to be in a place of righteous anger, that perhaps there is a darker element, a morose, a sadness, to that kind of energy. All of that, however, will be more adequately explained on the next EP, Blue."
Claiming his rightful place amongst industry legends, if “Red” is anything to go by, this artist will have his name in lights within a matter of months. Musically, the track hears Houston drop bars left right and centre throughout a classic production.
