Sum-in-1 - I Will Not Surrender

Posted 3 years ago
Producer:
Kev Da Khemist
Album:
None (Promo Single)

It’s no secret that brooding and art go hand-in-hand, so Sum-in-1‘s new video single, I Will Not Surrender, featuring live painting of gritty images by Van Saro, is fitting. Brooding not withstanding, make no mistake that Sum-in-1 is no Edgar Allan Poe and Van Saro is no Van Gogh; they both put on powerful displays of defiance, in their respective art forms. Including a painter in the video makes it easy to draw some powerful parallels. Van Saro brings words and ideas to life with his paintbrush without using a single word, while Sum-in-1 paints vivid visuals in the listener’s mind with his verbiage. Producer Kev Da Khemist‘s grimey sound lays the groundwork for a beautiful struggle in which we bear witness to words and brushstrokes playing off each other while telling their own individual stories. If you’re digging this, be sure to take a spin in the Way Back Machine and listen to Sum-in-1’s last DJBooth feature, from January 2012, She Walked On.
