GIBRILLAH RECRUITS PHIL FRESH & RAJ MAHAL FOR BUTTERY SINGLE 'BEAMER'
Words by Christopher Kevin Au
Stuck for date ideas? Gibrillah has you covered with his latest buttery effort, 'Beamer'. The track also features vocals from Phil Fresh and Raj Mahal, which comes as no surprise given that Gibrillah has collaborated heavily with Mozaick Records and Bodega Collective artists in the past, with producer Domba also laying down some slick production that contrasts greatly to the demonic, guttural sounds we've come to expect from the beat-maker.
'Beamer' sees Gibrillah draw upon his love for both hip-hop and soul, with a relaxed delivery that sets the tone for the premise of the track: Taking a cruise with your significant other in an expensive German automobile. Phil Fresh is no stranger to love ballads, and 'Beamer' sees him deliver an auto-tuned, melodic hook before Raj Mahal jumps in for a guest verse. But while you might be expecting Raj to bark, scream and yell his way through a verse, he shows much more restraint here, though his voice still booms with that Boston-bred confidence.
Whether it's as a solo artist or a member of Savour The Rations (alongside Kwame, Raj Mahal and Domba), Gibrillah is quickly establishing himself as one to watch from West Sydney. Go for a ride in your Beamer and pump this track; if you don't own one, call up your rich friend or splash on a rental for the weekend:
