New Music: Destroy & Rebuild EP

I’ve always admired the drive possessed by Princess Nyah, but this Destroy & Rebuild EP has left me a tad confused. I’m guessing the overall idea is pulled together by the title, giving the obvious musical statement. But unfortunately, except from the variation of genres including Drum & Bass, Bassline and Dubstep, and the collaborations stepping out of the Ill Blu comfort zone with appearances from Wiley and NoLay, I fail to see the substantial evident progression that is usually clearly seen when one chooses to “destroy and rebuild”. While I love the attitude Princess Nyah exerts within ‘Do What I Want’, it seems to have taken a holiday for ‘Artillery’. The words are there, but it for some reason I don’t feel like I can take it seriously. It may as well be Cher Lloyd singing or whatever, because the power needed to pull the track off is unfortunately not there. One of those sad musical moments, it may have actually been able to ‘shut this down’ because Nolay’s bars, once you finally get there, are undoubtedly HARD!!!

It's on the grapevyne that an album is on the cards titled Patience and Persistance, due for release later this year. So I’m guessing this EP has been released on a free download, because Princess Nyah has some fresher bangers cooking in the studio. Ones that will cause continuous explosive impacts like we saw from her Diary of a Princess EP. In fact, my favourite track on the Destroy & Rebuild EP is 'Crazy' which funnily enough is also on the previous EP, this time around however production coming from Champion.
