Brasstracks Drop Dynamic New EP: “Before We Go”

Brasstracks Drop Dynamic New EP: “Before We Go”

Among the best the Big Apple has to offer, Brasstracks dropped their brand new EP entitled “Before We Go”.

Unlike most current hip-hop, Brasstracks new EP continued their relationship with live instrumentation, rather than drum machines and synths. Ivan and Conor have created a signature blend, infusing R&B soul with live horns, percussion, and hard-hitting hip-hop.

Among the 7 songs on the EP, many featured rising artists from different genres including: R.Lum.R, Grace, Pell and Charles Gaines. The variety of Features demonstrated Brasstracks musical versatility. Tapping into more genres than ever before, while maintaining their unique sound, Brasstracks conjured their most ambitious project yet.  

Brasstracks shared some words about their upcoming EP and plans afterward:

“We’re BEYOND excited to share this music with you, but we realized you may not know what this project is all about, or the story behind some of the songs. Most people have so far thought that “Before We Go” is some sort of sign of our hiatus or of us splitting up as a band. Exactly what we wanted to you to believe, but it’s certainly the opposite of what’s going on. Truthfully, we just needed to get these songs to everyone, “Before We Go” start and finish an album. Our journey has only begun. It’s going to take some time, and we promise not to starve you guys with music – but that’s the root of it.

For Those Who Know was for our fans who stuck with us through an awkward transition from electronic and bombastic to more live and nuanced, from Soundcloud to Spotify and Apple, etc. Before We Go is a declaration for not just our fans, but for everyone, that we are here to stay, and the next project is going to be even bigger.”

‘She Got Some’ is an upbeat booty-house tune that will ratched up the energy on just about any dancefloor.

Paper Diamond Drops “Bass Real Big” Feat. Ms. Williams

Paper Diamond Drops “Bass Real Big” Feat. Ms. Williams

Paper Diamond! This man has been making the return of a lifetime this year, and we couldn’t be more happy about it.

Today he drops another fresh collaboration, this time with Ms. Williams who graces the track with a really dope hip hop verse, leading the song into a hypnotizing chorus. I’m sitting here blasting the track for the fourth or fifth time, and I’m still nowhere near done.

“Bass Real Big” shows off another side of Paper Diamond’s inimitable approach to dance music, more than living up to its title with a double-barreled speaker workout that’s strikingly minimal and wildly confident. A kick, a siren, and a bad-ass vocal, what more do you need?

Paper D-livers this song on none other than 4/20 – while not being as chill of a track as most of us might have expected – it’s still a special one nonetheless and I can’t get enough.

Bass Real Big is out today via Fool’s Gold, the imprint of revered producer/DJ A-Trak. Stream it below and give Paper D a like on Facebook.
