PoetX – “ODE2K0IPT.2”


The brief though wholly successful “ODE2K0IPT.2” is the latest track from PoetX, a recording artist, poet, and author born in Philadelphia, PA and raised in Newark, DE. Touting a spacey feel reminiscent of Shabazz Palaces, a murky and nocturnal beat takes hold in the first minute over the precise delivery. The 01:10 transition – “baby, I’m thirsty,” – is brilliantly executed, seamless in its melodic navigation despite being in relatively stark contrast to the preceding melody. It’s a thoroughly captivating turn that has me begging for the track to keep going.
