Tre Mission steps to 'Make a Move'; 4th single from album Orphan Black
Tre Mission drops 4th single in warm up to album Orphan Black. ‘Make A Move’ sees the Toronto don provide lowkey vibes, lush samples, and calm vocals.
Tre Mission has come a long way from being Canada’s first staple grime artist and delivering sounds like that heard on 2010’s ‘Warm Up Sessions’, and this 2011 ‘BBK Freestyle’. He is now in full album mode and released a concession of singles; ‘Hockey’, ‘You Can Have’, and ‘Hennessy Pool’. This 4th lays wake to ‘Make A Move’ - also taken from the upcoming album Orphan Black; dropping July 26th.
A great statement from Mission’s was received May 23rd about the upcoming album:
”A lot of people will tell u that in today’s industry, the body of work as we know it is becoming obsolete. They could be right or wrong but tbh I’ll probably never stop creating in this format. Looking at this artwork is a great feeling because I feel like I’ve died and come back to life and I’ve never been more excited about the art. Shout out all of my supporters and friends that held me down all this time and still take the time out to listen when I drop new shit even tho I go ghost like I already made it (I haven’t lol).”
With this new record, and others before it, you can truly hear the evolution in the overseas grime veteran. He has found a perfect pocket for his singing style to settle in, and one which bounces off the beat with ease. This is potentially a given, as the record is also produced by Mission. Yet, even here is another instance of the artist’s musical maturity, growth and development of skill - vocally and production-wise.
The instrumental houses a lush plucked guitar sample (guesses it being a guitar and a sample, he may have created it) which lifts up the rest of the mix like it’s tied to a weightless balloon. As if taking inspiration from the clouds this balloon is travelling through, the rest of the timbres are light also. They peep in now and again, sometimes unnoticed, all but to simply elevate the overall emotion. Noticeable though, is a smooth, delicate flute that airs out over the mix; some crisp percussion; and gentle drums to keep things tethered together.
Personally, this beat feels quite nature-esque. Potentially taken from the airy sounds, thunder samples, wooden percussion hits and shakers.
As is the main narrative of the record, Mission’s needs to “make a move”. He touches on his bits, respect to those trying to get through; those MIA; and quick flexes. His singing here is dynamic (the verse is hard) as his pitch floats up and down - another example of an artist fully coming into his own. Whilst the visuals portray the rapper presumably in his own area and with his people - smoking, drinking, chilling, having a good time - before we settle on a casual house party.
“All I got is game, give you that for free yeah. Had to switch my steaze, I’m about to clean up. I don’t need you, I believe in me. Flexing with no eyes, you don’t need to see.”
Definitely look out for Orphan Black on July 26th.
