Ghostpoet - Cold Win

Two years on from the release of his Mercury nominated debut, Peanut Butter Blues and Melancholy Jam, Ghostpoet aka Obaro Ejimiwe releases ‘Cold Win’ – the second single from his sophomore album Some Say I So I Say Light which came out May 2013 through Play It Again Sam.

‘Cold Win’, which Ghostpoet describes as “almost a flagpole or mast for the record”. Originally intended as a homage to old-school garage, it morphed into an electronic oddity that builds up gradually with cinematic swells of horns, although skipping, staccato beats remain as a hint to the track’s origins. It’s not the only song that shape shifts almost imperceptibly, ending up somewhere completely different to where it started.
