Unless you have been living on another planet, you will have probably heard the fanfare in the run-up to Ocean Wisdom’s second album, Wizville. Having scored such a huge hit with his first venture in 2016, the bar was set high for his sophomore release. When the tracklist was released a few weeks ago, the names involved made it seem like that bar was going to be easily reached, thanks to features from the likes of Rodney P, Chester P, Dizzee Rascal and Method Man.
Friday finally saw Wizville’s release become a reality and with it came a new video for the Dizzee track. Revvin’ is produced by Muckaniks, who has five credits on the album, including the previously released Brick or Bat. The track itself is a success and a definite high point on the album. I would say that 21 tracks looks to be too much for an album these days and when listening to Wizville, I would argue that Wisdom could have easily trimmed it down a bit, without losing any of its impact.
Having said that there are more than enough stand-out moments on the album for it to be a pleasure to listen to and I am sure it will bring High Focus the continuing success they deserve. Wizville is available to stream below and you can grab yourself a copy from the High Focus store.
