Bio

Novocation is a three-piece hip hop group.

Samson is the purest MC of the group. He delivers honest and introspective verses with a distinct delivery and flow. As a lover of wordplay and symbolism, Samson provides each Novocation track with poetic sensibility and intricately woven cadences. Samson also has a strong and distinct singing voice at his disposal that is used to add variety to his vocal contributions.

Jack Webster is a tight, quick fire rapper who also contributes to Novocation's harder hitting beats and sampled instrumentals. Webster's verses ooze confidence and paint vivid images that explore themes of growth and self reflection. His flow is impeccably smooth, and Jack's voice injects each Novocation track with a sense both an honest and braggadocios energy.

Keats operates as Novocation's primary singer, tackling most of the hooks on the songs. His approach to production and songwriting give the tracks a sense of cohesion and structure. Keats' playful rap verses, as well as the occasional use of stylistic autotune/pitch shifting add contrast and variety to the vocal content on the songs. He also functions as Novocation's mixing and mastering engineer.

A million points for originality and creativity. I'm a sucker for rhodes they are my life, not sure about those cadences though they are not really anything crazy. It's a very safe rap flow IMHO. Same goes for the second rapper "no one to be alone with" is smuggled into the rap and takes the focus away from the flow.

Great mix of vocals and great build up to kick the song off. Funky upbeat tune, something a bit different then the other tracks from Novocation - love the variety and different layers to this band!
