REVIEW: @Khaos_Music – Deception EP


Recently, we at 13thStreetPromotions had the opportunity to listen to an early copy of Dancehall Artist Khaos’ “Deception EP”. With today being the day of the project’s release, we present to you the review! – SwadeDaVillain

Words By @Sef_Jo

Let me start by saying this, I sincerely appreciate Khaos for keeping 13thStreetPromotions in the loop where Deception is concerned. Very professional looks especially where promotion is concerned and I must say that I’ve definitely learnt a lot through working with him. The graphics, pics, audio, videos etc. are A1!
I notice that the theme “One Fuck” is prevalent throughout the entirety of the 5-track extended play. This keeps the theme relevant! Very good job.
 
REVIEW
  • One Fuck
    The original. Khaos made this into a household name and it continues to beat the streets hard. As a true “trapskull”, I have to admit that I wasn’t 100% sold on “One Fuck” after its initial release. Worse, when I heard “Make Love” [after One Fuck was released as a single] and even more recently, “Don’t Remix”. What had me completely stunned though was the reception of “One Fuck” by Khaos’ core fan base. The Deception EP’s leading single is literally a social sensation that has had much of its impact on and throughout the Jamaican Twitter community. There are threads upon threads related to the hashtag #OneFuck and for that reason, I have come to understand what makes “One Fuck” successful as a single, in and of itself. With a clean version available, Khaos has been able to market the track to hardcore fans as well as to DJs [local + international] for radio spins.

  • Search Fi Love
    Now this… connected with me on a more personal level and just like with “One Fuck” it took me a good couple listens to fully wrap my head around the concept. I am not unfamiliar with the actual “Search For Love” but let’s discuss the immediate switch up; though the drum kit [rhythm] remains similar to the previous track, there is the sound of a harp that strikingly contrasts the way Khaos lets us know that he is in no way, shape or form interested in falling for his “One Fuck”. The contrast here depicts how sweet her touch was/is but Khaos shakes us [listeners] back to reality, this is Deception!
