We’re excited to premiere “No Games,” the latest release from Toronto-based electronic music artist Sickick. Known for performing with a mask — to keep the focus on the music rather than the person behind the mic — over the years Sickick has developed a sound he refers to as “Sickhop” — a genre-bending blend of dark R&B and melodic dance music.
Although he’s known for keeping his identity under wraps, “No Games” provides an intimate look at the artist as he comments on what it’s like to love someone who’s used to playing games. Sickick’s smooth production and aching lyrics speak directly to the listener, bringing you into Sickick’s mind. With each repetition of the chorus — “My love is not a game” — you’re brought more and more onto his side so that by the end of the song, you’re left hoping that the recipient of his heartfelt message does cut the shit and stop playing games.
