GORE REMIX: The Eleventh Hour release that became an anthem

Unbuckling from the eventful 2023, many had already considered it done and dusted for the year on the entertainment scene. However, Zimbabwean musicians surprisingly threw an anthem in the form of a musical remix to the song ‘Gore’ which was originally written and performed by 216 Whisky and Mr Attention. Borrowing from the sport of Cricket’s vocabulary, the featured artists on the track ‘struck an unexpected winning six with the last ball of the final over.

The ‘Gore’ remix was released on 28 December 2023 just a few weeks after the original song had already started making serious inroads. All the versions have so far recorded impressive numbers especially on the YouTube platform where both of them are currently soaring above 200 000 views. The song ‘Gore’ is essentially about traversing through the passage of dreams, individual reflections and arising obstacles as met in the just folded year. With a Hip Hop flavor, the track is also a call for one to remain hopeful in the new year.

The captivating beat and well-arranged verses from the different artists constitute the ingredients that make the anthem tasty. It might be proper to state that this is one track that might not require the burning of incense or a sugary prologue to explain, justify or push its listeners’ reach.

When a good piece of art has been chiseled it doesn’t always take rocket scientists or industry experts to approve. If the streets connect and sing along, that might be the only nod that matters in some circumstances.

As with many other collaborative projects, the Gore Remix has proved that Zimbabwean artists irrespective of the genres they represent, they can actually come together and create something to remember. Rising Zim Hip Hop stars, 216Whisky and Mr Attention who are the originators of the track clasped the genius of Voltz Jt, Poptain, Kae Chaps, Holy 10, Master H, Shone and Kikky Badass who both seamlessly delivered on the project. One can only hope that from such projects, the new names can build their confidence and find their solid footing.

While the ink is still fresh penning admirations of the Gore Remix 2023 project it might be prudent to highlight an area of concern.

As highlighted above, collaborations are commendable but there is accompanying fear of them turning into potential black holes especially for upcoming artists who can be swallowed in the glory of some big names that they work with. Without individual push and continual reinvention some promising artists later fail to rise above the set standards and eventually face an early extinction. Hopefully 216 Whisky and Mr Attention shall use this collaborative venture to catapult them to the next great creative project.
