This seven-track mini-album from 2014 only now gets the CR once-over. It encapsulates much of the Guvna B uplifting vibes, grimey rhyming ("Don't Give Up On Trying"), a range of creative breaks and an overall inspiring message to the listeners. After we look toward the summer vibes, "Rainbow" drops an amen drum and bass break before Guvna B looks up to the "Rainbow" and encourages us that "Heaven has got a plan for you." In "Summer Love" Guvna B brings it home, seeking to retake the world with love, remembering those lost to violence. From elements of drum and bass, the dancey "Chale", soulful sounds ("For The Greater") and pulsating synths, this is an EP sure to bring you a spiritual boost. Expect to hear "Something For The Summer", "Summer Love" and "We Don't Play" on X Rhythms in the coming months.
