In another win for West London, rapper Big Zuu has teamed up with electronic musician and producer David Gledhill, aka SOULS, to release a powerful new single: “We Will Walk”. A cathartic mix of airy beats, melodic synth and other-worldly vocals, the song is taken from SOULS’ upcoming album, and begins with a minor key melancholic garage beat, before a stunning hymnal sample of cuts into the track. Big Zuu delivers a verse bursting with energy and grit which flips the initial melancholic feeling of the track on its head.
Speaking on the track SOULS says, “I’ve been sitting on the music to “We Will Walk” for six years. But it needed a feature and I wanted to wait for the right one. Zuu brought something indescribable to it that was well worth the wait. It encapsulates everything I set out to do with this project. If the song comes out and resonates with people, lovely, but I can die happy just knowing Zuu and I created something special.”
Big Zuu has also expressed his thoughts on the track, “This song means a lot to me. When David first played it to me in the studio I knew I had to do the production justice as the beat says a lot in itself. I knew I had to match it with serious lyrics and melodies. Before I even started writing me and David spoke for 2 or 3 hours just about life and everything that had happened in both our backgrounds so when the writing process began I was already full of ideas and inspiration. I really hope everyone connects to this track as much as I do.”
