Emerging out of the shadow after his 'PROSPECT' EP' last April, SG Guillotine opened this year up with the release of ‘CRASH’ in January positioning himself at the forefront of the South East’s hip hop boom in the fastly growing Irish hip hop scene. The Kilkenny native rapper follows up with ‘Time & Energy’ a beautifully composed melodic trap love song backed up on a bouncy bassline sprinkled over soulful keys. Speaking on the message of the song SG shared“The song is about the feeling of loving someone's Time and Energy to the point that you feel like their enemies are your enemies”.
Produced by Floria’s own CorMill, who has earned his stripes and credits from working with YNW Melly, Jackboy (Kodak Black’s artist), Yvng Swag and JGreen. The collaboration occurred quite seamlessly when SG found one of CorMill’s beats online whilst out on a drive, he instantly started humming along to the melody and recorded a snippet on his phone to which he later used to compose the love song. SG explained “Most of my music is written late at night outside. For some reason,I usually come up with great music at those hours.”
Taking inspiration from various artist to fuse his own unique sound and ever-changing style SG explained when asked about his musical influences “They change a lot from time to time. At the moment I’m listening to Nines, Rick Ross, Skraps, G - Rdz, Salamay & ParyNextDoor”.
SG Guillotines upcoming release’ Time & Energy’ will be accompanied by a 1930’s Mafia style movie set in an old jazz club. Directed by Mark Anca & Rejjie Albert, expect action, thrills, romance and high speed chases. Time & Energy, by SG Guillotine, out now!
