Strong Arm Steady ft. Marsha Ambrosius - When Darkness Falls

DJBooth_logo2x

With their debut studio album finally on store shelves, you might assume that the Strong Arm Steady Gang would be too busy popping champagne and toasting to their success to think about those struggling to get by, but you'd be wrong. Ever grounded in the streets, Krondon, Mitchy Slick and Phil Da Agony take new single When Darkness Falls as an opportunity to acknowledge the treacherous conditions that are a fact of inner-city life. DJ Khalil takes an appropriately hard-nosed approach behind the boards, layering gritty piano loops over ominous synths and understated guitar riffs as SAS mix gritty braggadocio, lyrical storytelling and personal narrative – in the process shedding harsh light upon the circumstances that force individuals to sacrifice their values in order to survive. Neo-soul mainstay Marsha Ambrosius lends a hand on the guest tip, heightening the elegiac vibe with her mournful chorus vocals. Hungry for more fresh, uncompromising hip-hop goodness? That's exactly what you'll find on Strong Arm Steady new Arms & Hammers LP, released today to record stores and online retailers.
