Boomkat Product Review:
Outstanding drill/trap/industro-dub mutations by Brodinski (ATL) and Low Jack (Paris), following on from Brodinski’s key productions for Goodrich Pablo Juan, 21 Savage, Slim Thug, Kanye West, a killer start to La Disque De Las Bretagne’s 2020 release schedule.
As beat builder to both rap’s elite and the new skool, Brodinski (Kanye West, 21 Savage, Slim Thug, Lil Reek) brings a moneymaking suss to Low Jack’s cranky dancehall inspirations in four lean and rugged instrumental smackers.
Pitting their distinctive palettes for the good of the club, each cut toils a strictly pared-down sound that finds virtues in its ductile versatility and dank atmospheric qualities. Up top they elide woozy pipes with cone-slapping bass and drums that ricochet like distant gunshots in a warehouse, next to a nasty-ass cut of fizzing drill patterns and lurking two note melody. Down below, they knuckle one piece of bombed-out, demonic swagger, and its martial version loaded up with marching band snare rolls and queasy synth soul leads.
Highly compatible with both US and UK drill styles, the bleak and hungry vibe is just gagging to be made even darker with some road level realism by your favourite rapper. Rack up your acapellas and get busy...
