THE HEMPOLICS: Boss Clock Me Style (2017)

THE HEMPOLICS:  Boss Clock Me StyleBoss Clock Me Style sings vocalist Nubiya Brandon on the Hempolics new single. Punctuation commandos will note the lack of a comma after ‘Boss’ which is salient because it indicates that far from airily requesting her line manager to check how she rolls what she’s actually doing is lamenting her superior’s rather unhealthy interest in her. The sex pest. “What am I to do?” She wonders. It’s a dilemma that seems rather at odds with the rootsy sunshine feel of this Rodigan-approved track after all and certainly a tricky one. Still, perhaps remixes from legends Manasseh and JStar will facilitate the arrival of an answer as the former dispenses with the echo and ups the keys quotient for an early reggae vibe and the latter ups the echo and the bass to nice tings up in a digi-reggae stylee.
