Regular readers of The Static Dive first heard from Sabir Alim in November 2021 upon the release of his debut single “Sowing Made EZ.” that track introduced a socially conscious artist who mixes Rap and R&B vibes with strong philosophical views. He followed in December with the spiritually charged “The Devil’s Way.”
“Politrickal” is the latest single from Sabir Alim, released worldwide to all major streaming services on December 30, 2021. The track rides on a downtempo Hip-hop beat paired with some classic Soul instrumentation. As that groove rolls, analog synths, sci-fi blips and found sounds paint the edges of the mix.
As its title suggests, the song is a scathing commentary on the current state of the political system in the United States. In a smooth melodic rap, Sabir Alim delivers his testimony from the perspective of an elected official. With uncommon candor, the unnamed politician makes it clear that his speeches on the campaign trail were full of empty promises. Once he gets in office, it’ll be status quo.
