East Coast duo Dynamic Equilibrium is back with a new single just in time for the winding down of Summer. They are still preparing to drop their second full length project as well. The song is coined “System Overload.” It is inspired by the current stream of oppressive issues and violence that have been plaguing society as of late.
The production here is well put together. The conventional foundation, tame supporting details, smooth tempo, and pensive vibe result in a captivating mixture. The hook is choice too. The delivery is standout and the lyrics are memorable. The verses are satisfactory. The flow is spirited, the wordplay is valid, and the rhymes are powerful. The purpose of this record is to bring the brutality & loss going on in the world today to the forefront along with the message that there are those who are willing to do whatever it takes to see that justice is served to those who are suffering. This sentiment is conveyed expertly via lines like: “You probably think I’m bugging. I should fear the repercussions of a system that’s been proven to be built upon corruption. But me and my n—as we down to ride. 1-8-7 that’s homicide. Another Black kid laying dead outside.” One can not deny the gripping impact coming from those bars right there. Overall, this is a great revolutionary style anthem that makes a much needed statement.
**My Two Cents: I have a ton of respect for artists who use their platforms to address social issues. Especially in this day and age where music is so superficial. So I really took a liking to this track. The production is just right and the content is stimulating. Fans of conscious Hip-Hop will be all over this one for sure. Those with differing tastes are highly likely to appreciate it as well. If readers are feeling the record, it is slated to appear on the duo’s sophomore album, Formula 9DE. The LP is scheduled to hit the airwaves later on this month, so be sure to keep a lookout. -MinM
