Blaktrix - Some People Never Go Crazy (Album review for Buzz)

Words originally published in Cardiff magazine Buzz, and can be found in the September issue.

Blaktrix ***
Some People Never Go Crazy (Skreemer/Associated Minds)

Gradually making a name for himself in his hometown of Cardiff and beyond, Blaktrix certainly seems to have a lot to say for himself. As well as minor gripes about things like his Office Job, this is also packed full of wider social and political commentary – which is both a refreshing and inspiring listen. With slick beats and well-delivered lines it’s an impressive showing, and you’ll find yourself urging this mini album it to go on for a little longer. JM
