Hailing from Edinburgh, Scotland, Wardie Burns is a hip-hop artist of Powercut Productions. Delivering lyrics across high-octane powered beats, Wardie Burns leaves a positive impression, and is a curiosity worth checking out.
Teaming up with UVBeatz, Wardie Burns shows off sharp-cutting delivery over an explosive beat, with much to be desired in production quality. “Stuck In The Scene” channels a head bobbing demeanour in hard-hitting syllabic fashion whose lethality is watered down by a chorus lacking the production aesthetics of harmonies. With closer attention to the melodic aspects of the track, “Stuck In The Scene” has the potential to be a massive and slicing song.
“I’m Bru Man” is a raucous track, channeling the Black Sabbath swagger of “Iron Man” in its chorus but once again falls short in production value. Polymerizing the explosiveness of distorted guitar and wobbly bass, “I’m Bru Man” has the template to be a hard-hitting track that is unfortunately watered down by poorly recorded vocals. Once again, tightening up with the vocals will help complement the lethal clobbering of the beat.
Wardie Burns channels his best through his track “Hand Grenade,” produced by Steg G; spat over snare and blips, Wardie Burns roars “do not honour me / I am not Sean Connery” as if staking his identity into the audience, addressing both his name and his Scottish nationality. The song winds up into a bombastic track that signify a triumphant entrance through the listener’s headphones, complemented by a contagious hook of a chorus. Wardie Burns’ lyrics cut tight with a sharp electronic beat, giving listeners a cancerous head bobber.
Wardie Burns’ music is available on Powercut Production’s website, and his video “Hand Grenade” is available for viewing on YouTube. With an infectious swagger and massive beats, Wardie Burns seems ready to dish out some more walloping tracks.
