The Come Up Show has been following K. Forest since day 1, and for the right reasons.
The young protege has been serenading us all for years and his come up is starting to show, with notable features on his newer tracks and production credits on Baka’s latest work, his musical versatility and reach is really stretching. Although, that doesn’t stop Forest from sticking to his roots and teaming up with partner in crime and key producer dF.
The two have a vast portfolio of work together and TCUS has been covering it all since day one, and this latest release of 2 tracks is no different. The two have teamed up with Andrew Gowie and brought us 2 smooth songs along with their respected instrumentals which all 3 have produced together.
Forest’s voice covers the tracks with his staple, recognizable sound that rides the production perfectly. Forest is one of the few artists with such a distinct sound, it would be hard for another artist to duplicate it or reciprocate the smoothness of it over distinct production.
Track 1 is Fall Back Gang, an ode to Forest and his team, stepping aside from an emotional, love related song to something more personal and proud, a song about leaving things to be and sticking to himself and his aspirations. The songs production is where it really shines with a slow paced beat overlapping heavy hitting snares and treble with subtle bass and melodic sampling, none of which is a surprise for a team who has consistently proved themselves to be masters of production.
In the second track, Love Worth Having, Forest questions his aspirations and pursuit of love with questions towards his lover and to himself about trust and loyalty. He questions intentions and tries to understand himself and his lover, a self war being projected onto a slow paced beat with melodic piano samples peppered through short breaks. Another prime example of the team’s immaculate production and Forest’s ability to bring the emotion out of a well executed beat.
Take a listen below to Fall Back Gang and Love Worth Having and their instrumentals. Hearing the beat and rehearing the vocals once again gives the track a new vibe, and Forest and his team are all about mastering their sound and it shows here. Forest kicked off the New Year with two new tracks and promises a year of growth with no ceiling.
