I introduced Tahir Jahi to you not too long ago, with the excellent Da sunshine and its remix (refresh your memory here), both courtesy of Pittsburgh-based producer BusCrates, whom you should be familiar with if you have been following the blog. The two of them seem to be on a roll lately as their levels of creativity and productivity are very high! They have been working on several tracks together already and it becomes clear that theirs is a winning combination. I was mentioning before that I was looking forward to hearing more from them and I am glad to see my wishes come true. I now have a feeling it is only the beginning of their adventures, which is something I am very happy about.
Tahir Jahi and BusCrates’ latest offering is entitled Frustration and seems to be hesitating between seriousness and comedy, in the same way as the direction taken for the official video can make you feel uncomfortable, wanting to laugh hard but feeling kind of bad for Tahir. The track is about relationships and how men and women have to make compromises, even if it’s from the guy’s point of view, who seems to be putting himself in the shoes of a victim. As I said it can be quite funny at times but what’s important is the great quality of the production, courtesy of BusCrates, and Tahir Jahi’s lyrical talent and versatility. There are two special guests on the video, Flex Alexander and Donyelle Denise Jones (I can admit I have never heard of them because I’m a French girl in the UK who never watches TV or goes to the cinema, but you should know them ).
After this short introduction, it is now my pleasure to present Frustration to you. You can download it on Tahir Jahi’s Bandcamp or by clicking on the link below.
And you can now watch the official video, full of special guests and comedy. Enjoy!
