Single: Son of Sam- Flying Fist ft. Prince Po

In Hip Hop by Tom Hill

Son of Sam is back with a new animated clip

Some real old school vibes on this new offering from UK hip hop group Son of Sam – “Flying Fist”. For those unfamiliar with the four piece group Son of Sam consists of John Sam on drums, Joe Sam bass and guitars and Richard Halligan on keys and saxophone. Tom Caruana is credited as producer, known for his reworking of classic hip hop.

The use of a multi-instrumental beat gives a classic, rich sound which ranges from smooth jazzy licks and string riffs to the all important boom bap percussion and scratching. Finishing this all off the group calls upon New York veteran Prince Po to offer some punchy bars.

Son of Sam have also been able to attract the attention of Masta Ace and Large Professor. This time the group’s retro vibes are channelled into a more mellow bassy track with reflections on the past from the two guests. Again we also get vibrant and slightly psychedelic visuals for an equally retro music video.

For more of Son of Sam keep an eye out for new album Cinder Hill. The project is expected at the end of September.
