Review: FILTHY RICH by Yacko ft Lawrence Philip of EGRV

This is what Free! Magazine said about Filthy Rich (It’s in Indonesia and I’ll do my best translation in English)

FILTHY RICH adalah single ke-3 Yacko dengan salah satu dedengkot penggerak Drum ‘n Bass/Dubstep Ibukota Lawrence Philip dari EGRV. Selain itu, Lawrence juga pernah mendapatkan predikat Producer of The Year dari REDMA di tahun 2009.

Filthy Rich is the 3rd single from Yacko, collaborating with Jakarta’s drum’n’bass/dubstep prime mover Lawrence Philip of EGRV. Lawrence was also awarded as Producer of The Year at REDMA 2009.

Eksperimen mungkin merupakan kata yang tepat untuk menggambarkan kolaborasi ini. Sound yang tidak biasa langsung terdengar saat lagu ini diputar dengan suara high-volume ditambah lirik-lirik playful dari Yacko yang setahun belakangan ini aktif di dance scene / club di Indonesia. Terinspirasi dari sebuah kutipan dari Coretta Scott King (istri dari Martin Luther King, Jr), “Hate is too great a burden to bear. It injures the hater more than it injures the hated” lirik dari lagu ini dibangun. Haters bisa bermunculan dari berbagai arah dan yang Yacko ingin sampaikan melalui metafora F I L T H Y adalah “favor and don’t listen to the public” R I C H adalah “Do yourself a huge whether you are a hater or a lover, feel free to jump around with this song because this track will get-you-going with a mix of electro and hip-hop”.

Experimentation is probably the most fitting description for this collaboration. Unusual sounds are immediately heard when you play this tune at high volume added with playful lyrics from Yacko who has been active in the Indonesian dance scene in the past year. The lyrics were inspired by Coretta Scott King (wife’s of the late Martin Luther King, Jr), “Hate is too great a burden to bear. It injures the hater more than it injures the hated”. Haters could sprung out of anywhere and the message that Yacko wants to communicate is “Do your self a favor, don’t listen to the public, whether you’re a hater or a lover feel free to jump around.
