The video for this track came out last week, but it cuts out DΞΔN’s part and that is the section that gives the track all of its flavor.

Not that Offonoff doesn’t do his thing on the track, but DΞΔN manages to overshine him thanks to the direction he takes his vocals in.  But let’s start from the beginning.

Rapper/singer Offonoff has dropped his new album and gold is the standout track amongst a lot of gems.  The song, about being comfortable in yourself and finding the blessing in even a calm life, the song has a feel-good vibe and really sets a mood with its piano melody and simple boom-kack beat.  The principle artists has a nice voice on this, with some good moments that show off some soul, but he goes for a more steady, almost monotone approach that creates a kind of hypnotic feel as his first verse goes on.  If the rest of the song or his second verse would have continued like that, we would have skipped this, but…

Than DΞΔN comes in and knocks the whole track out of sync (in a good way).  At first, the melody of the production drops out as he goes slightly off-pitch with his opening notes, but comes back in and he proceeds to rap-sing for the rest of his verse, changing up his flow and blazing a little jazz into his vocals for good measure.  It really is the standout section of the track.  When Offonoff comes back in, things are a little less monotone but still just as steady, but it serves as a great offset to what DΞΔN had done previously and actually stands out more against the more chaotic section that precedes it.

This is a solid track that sneaks up on you with how good it is.  We hope we get a duet live stage of this soon (not holding our breath, though).

Lyrics:
It’s so wavy baby, Nobody can do this
You know it’s better than rap with my melody
uh, guys these days are too much like each other
Those things leave me cold
Can you feel it, This is totally new vibe shit
You, who doesn’t develop your abilities and is not funny
Jus shut your mouth
Ay, Why do you keep bothering me?
I’m a free guy
To me, every moment is new
I draw it based on my feelings
Okay, my paintings is different
Do you leave your inspires alone?
I’m different with you, I’m selling arts
I have nothing to hide
Under the palm tree, lay down with stars
Ay, Drink
We made everyone goes crazy with our party, Pow Pow

Go to the place far away where no one lives
You don’t need to take care of anyone
You’re great just the way you are, yeah
The color of setting sun is so gold
Shiny neckless and the future is so gold, so gold
We’ll be alright (we’ll be alright)
We’ll be alright (we’ll be alright)

It feels so gold – so gold –
We’ll be alright (we’ll be alright)
We’ll be alright (we’ll be alright)

At the cold alley on October (uh)
I play this tape again and again man that’s all
I don’t sit down, I don’t crumble
It’s palace bro
Avoid that city which doesn’t have any feelings
Woo yeah we keep runnin’
Woo yeah we keep hustlin’
woo, Even the eyes are changed, we’re the same as that time
Bitch don’t judge me
“Too cool 4 skoool.” fuck it
Stacks of LPs under the palm tree are oldie friends
Those were useless back then
But now it became a gold
I can’t believe it
I can’t believe it
Then say it (Hey)
Thank god thank god
Thank god thank god
I’m blessed.

I can’t believe it
Now you can see the difference
I’m different
Thank god thank god
Thank god
I’m blessed
See that?

Go to the place far away where no one lives
You don’t need to take care of anyone
You’re great just the way you are, yeah
The color of setting sun is so gold
Shiny neckless and the future is so gold, so gold
We’ll be alright (we’ll be alright)
We’ll be alright (we’ll be alright)

It feels so gold – so gold –
We’ll be alright (we’ll be alright)
We’ll be alright (we’ll be alright)

Go to the place far away where no one lives
You don’t need to take care of anyone
You’re great just the way you are, yeah
The color of setting sun is so gold
Shiny neckless and the future is so gold, so gold
We’ll be alright (we’ll be alright)
We’ll be alright (we’ll be alright)

It feels so gold – so gold –
We’ll be alright (we’ll be alright)
We’ll be alright (we’ll be alright)
