In view of the recent quality of promo's I've been sent to review, it made a change to be handed these two CD's on Batcisum Records. I didn't know a thing about the rapper named Final Element, but was pleasently suprised with the quality of the tracks. On 'Da Launch Pad', things begin with some verses over a well known Mobb Deep beat. Element's voice is very London orientated and his flow is neither simple and basic, or overly complicated. It has clarity, character and confidence. There's a variety of moods throughout the CD, and there are various insights into the artist's personality and perspective. The only downside is that there's occasionally some female vocals which sound fairly cheap. That aside, there's a mixture of tracks suitable for the club, or an introspective drive around the block. On the 'Da Coming (Da Alpha)' CD, things are constructed a little better to give a more professional feel of an album, although both CD's are basically just demo's/promo's to create a buzz. 'Wot A Shame' has a really catchy and enjoyable beat, the flow suits perfectly and besides from the British female sung chorus, it's got success programmed all over it. Element's verses over 'Yeah' by Usher shits on all the jacked beat tracks I've heard for quite some time. Check out www.Batcisum.com for more info.
