He’s laced some of the hottest mainstream acts with blazing tracks but you may not know his name. Emeli Sandé, Ne-Yo, Lupe Fiasco, Usher and Avicii are just a few of the A-listers Eshraque Mughal, better known as iSHi, has worked with in the past. The Swedish songwriter/producer is credited with discovering the stellar talent Eric Turner and for catapulting British rapper Tinie Tempar into international fame. In his latest project iSHi has teamed up with Virginia MC Pusha T to drop what seems certain to be a global anthem.
‘Push It’ is a call to action, to perseverance in the face of adversity. “Push it to the limit, if you wanna win it…no room for the weak or the timid” is how King Push kicks off his mic attack. The beat, which skips nimbly between hip hop and electronica, is a reflection of iSHi’s versatility. Hard-hitting as the bass, drums and Pusha’s rhymes are, a space for cool reflection towards the end of the track. The combination of images that make up the video are an engaging view to say the least. Don’t think about hitting play again, just ‘push it’.
