We finally got to hear Stooki Sound’s debut concept EP, Osiris, which was released last week. The EP drop marks the start of the London based duo’s North American tour and the launch of their O.N.E. Worldwide label.
As the inkblot album cover depicts, Osiris is named after the Egyptian god of the afterlife. This ancient figure also represents transition, resurrection, and regeneration. Stooki Sound was inspired by the concept of transformation as their EP evolved into a new sound that is paving the way for the trap scene.
The six-track EP is a cohesive journey of international sounds and insane beats. After Stooki Sound’s own Jelacee made his vocal debut in “My G’s” last month we were eager to hear more from the DJ. He didn’t disappoint in “Hear That,” a grime-inspired hit that also features London rapper P Money. “Exodus” is another standout with its subtly deadly drop and snake charmer ambiance. The project is an artistic success that the god of the afterlife would surely be proud of from his tomb in Egypt.
Osiris is free to stream and download so take a listen below.
