Maze is a new single from Spida Collins. Drawing from an eclectic range of musical styles, Maze contains elements of hip hop, pop and EDM. These are blended synergistically to create an energetic and vibrant sound. Approached from a positive perspective, the lyrics center upon the theme of perseverance. As the title of the song suggests, our lives are often analogous to a maze. The walls represent problems that we run into, which we must bounce back from and keep moving, as we attempt to find our way out of the maze. The maze can also be seen as the obstacles in our own mind toward achieving inner peace and harmony.
The production on this track is very impressive for an “indie” hip hop song. I don’t just mean the recording quality but also the arrangements and complex juxtaposition of complementing musical vocals, rapping and various synths and beats. Some great musical craftsmanship here which makes for a genuinely effective and emotionally uplifting song. Maze manages to strike the right balance between being a song with intellectual depth and a cool party track that people can get down to on the dance floor. The music allows the listener to experience the message of the song, even if they’re just having a swell time dancing and not even listening to the words.
