Bhok "Say Something"
- Words: Tim Gentles
We know very little about Sam Stewart—the producer who goes by the name of Bhok—but this tune has piqued our interest with its funky, clattering sensibility. "Say Something" begins with a loose-limbed beat and deep, propulsive bass before introducing cut-up vocals sampled from Brandy's and Monica's "The Boy Is Mine." While R&B vocal sampling in this kind of house and bass music has become a bit of a cliche, Bhok saves face with a rhythmic complexity that recalls some of Blawan's better moments.
