Boomkat Product Review:
Boisterous, daring hip hop club stunts and tricks from S-Type, including his hugely in-demand anthem; ‘Fetch’
“Finally, S-Type - Fetch is out today: the first single from a brand new record. Fetch has been ripped to YouTube from various live sets and mixes, establishing a quasi-mythic status as one of LuckyMe's 'lost tracks' deemed by fans to live as a lo-quality rip forever. In fact, the track was caught up in longgggg sample clearance negotiation with Universal, and tracked out by various rappers. This year we replayed the sample and took it back to include on this ep of new unheard S-Type. After a couple years focused on behind-the-scenes recording, mixing and scoring, we're so proud to announce Bobby Perman's return to LuckyMe with his best work to date.
S-Type's sound has been defined by massive, melodic instrumental hip hop played out in clubs as dance music - but this was always a side effect of growing up far away from the rappers he sought to collaborate with. His track ‘Billboard’, released alongside the first TNGHT and Baauer music was seminal in the genre that some American festivals mistakenly termed “trap”. But the reality has always been that S-Type’s primary inspiration is hip hop. From the online subculture of DIY producers dating back to the famous Louis Den beat battles, forums, myspace to soundcloud, S-Type is a quiet leader of the beat scene - respected by top producers from OVO to The Cave. On S-Type - 'Beat', Bobby celebrates the booming scene of beatmakers trying to come up online, and affirms himself as one of the best doing it. Your favourite producers favourite producer.”
