Born from struggle and hardship, Auckland-hustling rapper Saint Lane is steadily carving out his own atmosphere in the hip-hop scene. Resurrecting an often over saturated sound, “Zip Code” is a hypnotic take on contemporary rap. An audible symbol of Basquiat, this joint is ripe with rhythm, saturated with dope flow and syrupy transitions- whistling tones penetrate the rolling drum beat that define its very nature. Saint Lane’s vocal tenor is approachable yet outstanding, breathing a new life into modern hip-hop. Conjuring up a nasty yet melodic track, “Zip Code” is both a party anthem, and a smoke session necessity. Listen to the movement.
