What So Not & George Maple Come Together For “Buried” ft. Rome Fortune

What So Not and George Maple have teamed up once more for a new track, and accompanying video, Buried featuring rapper Rome Fortune. The track is their latest collaboration, following on from last year’s Gemini. Both the track and video have me absolutely mesmerised.

The track is glistening and theatrical, with a glam feel to the atmospheric instrumental. Rome’s increasingly frantic verse is rhythmically amazing, blending so perfectly with WSN’s sweeping, syncopated production and Maple’s honeyed hook. The video was co-directed by Leticia Dare and Andrew O’Tools, and is a stunning representation of the dark, powerful track. The slow, visceral scenes of the artists underwater blend moments of calm collection with frantic, panicked jolts. Beautifully shot, with incredible colours and rhythmic timing, this might just be one of my favourite new tracks of the year so far.

The track was co-written by all three artists, and produced by What So Not and THC. On the track, the artists have commented, “We’re all guilty of our vices. Whether a flickering thought or a lifestyle, our obsession with fame, money, sex & power drives a paradox of wonderful & horrible behaviour.”
