Matthew Schultz x Zolo – One Wok:
This latest release, One Wok (ft. Zolo), is a laid-back dancehall track in the vein of artists like Tory Lanez, Kranium, Skillibeng and Major Lazer. It starts out with a languid but very catchy refrain from Zolo over a four chord synth progression, deep dub bass and simple but effective percussion. It then switches to Matthew’s fine lead vocals on the verse, which works as a nice contrast to Zolo’s slick rapping.
With a syncopated, lilting rhythm guaranteed to get hips swaying on the dance floor, the track builds to the irresistible title hook: “I one wok for you….”. Lyrically, it’s about desiring someone so much that you’re prepared to put in the hard yards to get them.
The words to the second verse from Schultz are decidedly sensual and designed to get dancing couples feeling amorous: “Baby girl, talk that talk, you’re smooth like wine, girl, my hands on your waist while looking in your eye….”. The track closes out with the infectious title refrain, the top notch production full of cool sound effects that add to the ear candy.
Overall, this is another great dancehall anthem perfect for the late summer. Following on from several hugely successful tracks is not easy but Matthew Schultz and his featured guest artist Zolo have created another banger that will undoubtedly slay on the dance floor and will work for commercial radio too. Schultz has a definite talent for producing summer smashes that sound good all year round and One Wok is yet another.
