After four years working on solo projects Dan le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip reunite to return with their third album titled Repent Replenish Repeat. The album was released on October 7th on Sunday Best.
In typical fashion of Dan le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip their style and sound is unique, the album is full of electro beats made by Dan le Sac mixed with spoken word lyrics/vocals coming from Scroobius Pip. Throughout the album Scroobius Pip raps with emotion and powerful messages.
‘Terminal’ and ‘Porter’ are both slow-moving atmospheric stories that give a great narrative as well as a different sonic sound on the album. Both of the tracks feature lyrics that the listener can relate to with clever words and storytelling.
‘Gold Teeth’ – the albums second single which features Flux Pavilion – has a dark drum & bass beat, that is a sure thing to be played in the club. ‘Stiff Upper Lip’, which features Itch, is a hard paced track, where Scroobius Pip raps with aggression in a rebellious tone at a fast pace.‘You Will See Me’ has Scroobius Pip rapping in an intense rant style without much of a beat, until the drums kick in midway through the track, which is a haunting closing track for the album.
Listening to Repent Replenish Repeat, Dan le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip have created a dark toned atmospheric album, going in their own musical direction which sounds nothing like anything else that is available today in UK hip hop.
