D-Sisive Like This (plus three)

D-Sisive Like This (plus three)
The wait for D-Sisive’s album continues. Instead, his newest is more of a maxi-single, with the inclusion of album, radio and instrumental versions of title track "Like This,” a smooth but groovy bit of braggadocio anchored by a funky bass line, although the primary selling point is probably the guest verse by hot Detroit commodity Guilty Simpson. The "plus three” are a little more of what we’ve been hearing recently from the introspective MC. In fact, the first of these songs is Moonshine’s majestic, horn-heavy remix of "Up,” a melancholy trio of stories about hope and hardship originally on The Book. D-Sisive follows with "The Flintsones,” a touching song about a child and his loving but abusive mother made even more effective thanks to the sombre Arkeologists production. The EP concludes on a slightly higher note, and faster tempo, with D-Sisive dropping his densely metaphorical hip-hop history on "The Outro.” The anticipation builds, as does D-Sisive’s reputation within the Canadian hip-hop scene.
