By Sound Check
March 29, 2016
Four months after the release of his” MACHINE” EP, UK lyricist GAIKA is back with the ominously titled, “The Villainous Theme.” The title may perhaps be slightly misleading, as GAIKA is in no way the villain here. Channeling his unique brand of dusky, electro-grime and dancehall harmonies, he delivers his doomful bulletin of rebellion against the cycle of oppression. Now is not the time for complacency or turning a blind eye. The Brixton vocalist urges us all to stay ‘woke.’ “Ransack & Rebuild – that’s The Villainous Theme. This is my scripture; the lessons I’ve learned from every part of my environment. We need to direct our aggressions towards our enemies and protect our bodies from exploitation and assault without worrying what polite society thinks. We need to regulate and it’s as simple as that.” – GAIKA
