Asante Phenix is a master of his craft. Expertly layering brooding vocals and dramatic harmonies over otherworldly beats, Phenix presents us with his masterpiece, “Baptism.” Please consider a track feature on Skope.
Keeping true to the message of struggle and rebirth, the track goes through its own reincarnation of sorts. Phenix’s vocals are genuinely moving as he exposes his vulnerability, yet he reaches an emotional high in the chorus, a poignant affirmation of who he has become. This is not a track about defeat. Instead it is a compelling narrative of the individual versus adversity. It is deeply layered, personal, intense…but it all works. Call “Baptism” a renewal, this one is a sound all it’s own.
