Remykid – Sweet and Wavey (EP Review)

If you plan to pick yourself up a copy of Remykid’s Sweet and Wavey, prepare yourself for five tracks of smooth jams that will keep your toes tappin’ and your head bobbin’ throughout each and every song. In fact, one of the most impressive aspects of this Nigerian singer/rapper’s record is his ability to pull you into a track and make you want to sing along, even if it’s your first time hearing it. Combining an intriguing mixture of UK hip hop flavor with bashment and afrobeat, the result is enough to make you want to put the record on repeat and keep the tracks playing.

A huge part of the EP’s ability to keep you hooked can be attributed to the production value. Mixed and mastered to perfection, each track was consistent in its quality. Remykid was audible throughout the entire record and there was never a part that felt overproduced or as if the production was taking away from his natural musical talent. In addition, the instrumentals were absolute fire, and his choice of beats matched each track wonderfully. Often, in this genre, the production can be arguably credited as the main reason that a person listens to and enjoys the music. However, Sweet and Wavey are not one of these EP’s. Instead of Remykid being outperformed by his producers or visa versa, the two complemented one another seamlessly and made every track even more enjoyable.

If I were to issue any critiques about Sweet and Wavey they would be in the style and content departments. As it stands, the EP consists of 3 tracks about love, sex, and chasing women with ‘Who Dem Help,’ ‘Girl You Got Me,’ and ‘Night Love,’ sandwiched between two conscious and introspective tracks with ‘Internet’ and ‘Meeting Greeting.’ While all five of these songs are relatable, I think it would have benefitted Remykid greatly to vary his content a little bit to provide some variety throughout the EP. Additionally, the first three tracks of the album are quite a bit slower with ‘Night Love’ and ‘Meeting and Greeting’ turning up the tempo just as the record is coming to a close. Comparing the first half of Sweet and Wavey with the second half, the tone difference almost gives the listener the impression that Remykid was bored during the first couple of tracks, despite the catchy nature them. Varying the tempo throughout the EP would help to negate this outlook.

In the future, I’d love to hear tracks from Remykid that vary in style. With this EP showing off his talent both for the music itself and ensuring high-level production for his records, I think his voice could be leant to a wide variety of projects in a diverse array of genres. I’d love to hear him show off and put what he can really do on display. The biggest take-away from this EP? Don’t sleep on Remykid! He’s going to clearly do some big things and one of them is Sweet and Wavey so grab yourself a copy. It’s recommended!
