'Sunday Service' - Chief Wigz (12" review)

“Timing is of every importance” – Chief Wigz (previous 'On The Radar' artist) has used the elapsed time between his ‘Never Speak Ill of the Dead’ EP and this to sharpen and perfect his recognisable lyrical style. As a result ‘Sunday Service’ is a tight 12” consisting of three focused tracks on which Wigz showcases his maturing vocals. By way of content Wigz simply invites you inside his psyche to give you honest musings on real life wrapped in poetic language.

Brutal Artistry provide all three beats; title track ‘Sunday Service’ is a lovely wedge of boom-bap soul laced with their trademark old skool drums, ‘Don Style’ is a half-time, melancholy and minimalist composition whereas, in complete contrast, ‘DSB’ is a bass heavy, middle eastern menace.

‘Sunday Service’ will be out on Don’t Talk To Strangers on 14th September as a download and on 12” vinyl. It’ll be available at all the usual places. Listen to 'Sunday Service' on the Certified Banger Podcast now!
