Having already established himself as a wordsmith, it comes as no surprise that Che Lingo has returned with another thought provoking number. This time it’s a Jazz-infused hip hop track entitled ‘Distance’.

The release of ‘Distance’ follows what can only be described as an extremely eventful summer for the rapper, which saw him perform at the first-ever The Ends Festival in Croydon, Latitude, Boomtown for BBC 1XTRA’s takeover, as well as Glastonbury Festival with Silver Hayes.

Che lingo then ventured out on a headline UK tour, with the finale show being held at the historic Jazz Cafe in Camden.

Fans of the show Top Boy may also recognise his song ‘Same Energy’ which was featured in its new season.

So we’ve established that the rapper has accolades, but what about his latest song?

‘Distance’, produced by Kadiata, is the first single from Che’s upcoming project; which will feature producers such as Ozhora (Diego – Tory Lanez) and Gotts Street Park who’ve recently worked with Rejjie Snow and Kali Uchis.

If you were lucky enough to catch Che’s performance at Glastonbury, you may already be familiar with the track.

As the song title indicates, ‘Distance’ explores the idea of being in a long distance relationship.

The call and response style adlibs, both in spoken word and melodic form, created the impression of echoing thoughts, perhaps alluding to the fact that the track represents an internal conversation the rapper is having with himself.

Everything from the song’s instrumental composition to Che’s cadence was hypnotic. Using a soothing vocal delivery over an ostinato electric guitar melody, the rapper really took listeners on journey.

With intellectualism in abundance, a mandatory replay will be a standard procedure just to make sure you caught everything the rapper was saying.
