Quick Review: Bashy - Catch Me If You Can

Artist: Bashy

Title: Catch Me If You Can

Label: GGI

To say this 17 track ALBUM is long overdue is an understatement as we’ve put up with half-focused underground mixtapes from Ashley Thomas for far too long. UR Mum – Vol.1, Chuppa Chups and didn’t really say much about the artist or his place in the industry… unlike Catch Me If You Can. There is nothing like a versatile, HMV, iTunes and radio-friendly LP to get you noticed (not saying that the bigness and controversy of Black Boys didn’t raise his profile of course).The N-Dubz collab is the prefect feel good track for the summer, Before Before is big, Millionaire will grow on you like the show itself, Your Wish… flipped EVERYTHING, meanwhile Ransom gives that extra bit of grit. Not sure about some of the hooks (especially that Autotune thing four tracks in) but really feeling the flow, lyrics and confidence of the next Black Boy to blow. A must for music fans and/ or wannabe music millionaires.

Track To Check: We Can Do Anything Ft. Loick Essien & Jamelia
