While the original “4 Barz” is still capable of bringing on visions of East London street warfare, Barely Alive steps in with this filthy remix for Circus Records that takes the Funtcase original and brings on the cybernetic pain in an inimitable way.
Merky Ace’s streetwise lyricism remains front and center and keeps the gangsta lean on full tilt with Barely Alive amping up the ill flow by injecting a dose of anabolic filth that rides that fine line between cinematic fervor and straight up rib-rattling punishment. Heavy switchbacks and dreamy interludes make for an addictive ride that will no doubt be dropped by Barely Alive on the bassPOD masses when they step up on deck next month at EDCLV. (Lock in your tickets here if you haven’t done so already!)
Even if you’re not joining us under the stars in Vegas, expect to hear this one getting rinsed all summer long by all the heavy hitters so grab your own copy of this bad boy thriller here.
