Boomkat Product Review:
Rabit kneels at the altar of DJ Screw with ‘Bricks In A Drought’, the killer 2nd drop in a trilogy dedicated to the late, influential Texan pioneer of chopped ’n screwed hip hop.
Staying true to Screw’s OG aesthetic, Rabit continues to pursue that slow, viscous Texan sound across 50 minutes of slow down R&B, soul and rap steeped in codeine and sprite vibes.
Slackening Sade, Aaliyah, Riri and Ciara into the mix along with Araabmuzik and more, Rabit nails a proper, dusky, stoop-side sound in 11 parts underlined by the wooziest, gelatinous subs and smudged with glistening compression artefacts to hold listeners under its slow, heavily warped spell.
Right about now, there’s hardly a better, sweeter soundtrack to the world melting around us.
