First of all, the beat on this track is really catchy and energetic, with a tasteful Grimes sample in the foreground of the production plus trap-style hi-hats that give it a great rhythm. The producer has done an excellent job of creating a high-energy instrumental that also features ambience while complementing XLYRINGE‘s rapping perfectly.
XLYRINGE‘s flow is also impressive, with a rapid-fire delivery that keeps the momentum of the track going. His lyrics focus on the theme of an outbreak, and he paints vivid pictures of chaos and destruction with his words. The delivery is confident but it could be more polished. And I wish the song was longer so I do have to dock a few points for that. But that does not make this artist any less of a threat to the naysayers. Hes clearly on the rise and carving a lane of his own.
Overall, “OUTBREAK” is a great example of modern trap music and its influence on rising artists. The beat is catchy, the flow is tight, and the chorus is memorable. I want to hear more from this artist in the future! Im giving OUTBREAK by XLYRINGE a decent rating of 7/10 docking a few points for song length and production quality.
