“Imperium” is a song about affairs that surrounded the struggle and hardships of pioneers who settled the Ancient City on Ollie Twist’s new full-length album MDLXV (1565). The layered soundscapes on this track include deep synths, ominous tremolo guitar, slick piano licks and dark melodies. The verses work as a narrative taking the listener on a play-by-play historic timeline of events complimented by powerful vocals from Jill Freisinger on the chorus. Rap with substance is back! Weaving together classic Hip-Hop storytelling foundations with diverse electronic instrumentation, MDLXV constantly pushes forward; keeping the listener engaged and intrigued every step of the way.
