The Perfect Dark


Artist: David Ashley
Label: Posture
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 07 October 2014

David Ashley, the 26 year old Chicagoan who first came onto the music scene in the summer of 2013 via RnB group Jody, presents Perfect Dark, his debut project. The album is mostly produced by himself, the content of which details his most personal experiences from a viewpoint that’s rare but still uniquely Chicago...

David Ashley's new album, Perfect Dark, is an interesting entry into the rap market. The "N" word feature prominently in just about every track, but more bizarrely is a rather odd, high-pitched "scoot" vocalisation that Ashley throws in every now and then on the occasional track. The end result is not unlike listening to a very musically gifted Tourette syndrome sufferer.

The album contains 10 tracks (40 min, 14 sec) the majority of the tracks bordering on a rap/RnB crossover. It's a laid back, chill out album that is worth picking up if you're looking for a new mellow rap album.
