Boomkat Product Review:
Ras G returns to his Ghetto Sci-Fi Music label with ‘Down 2 Earth, Vol. 3’ a decade since his debut, and following in the wake of ‘Dance Of The Cosmos’
The master of smudged hip hop loops is at his woozy, blasted best throughout this episode, sending us horizontal with 12 tracks of bass-heavy booty cushioning and frayed samples baked into a gooey boom bap cake.
While Madlib continues to be conspicuous by his absence for the release schedule, Ras G is effectively left to uphold the old skool boom bap values in his own style here, conjuring a slow and heavy trip that quickly draws us into his soulful, dubbed-out vibe and keeps us smudged down there. Sounds best with a zoot and ginger beer.
