Short review extracted from our July 6th Open Tabs Rundown of recent releases.
Occasionally you run across something on Bandcamp that defies all logic. In the case of New Bang, we seem to have stumbled upon the first single from a forthcoming release entitled Ultimate Tiki Beach Breaks, which promises to be “a Surf-Influenced exploration of Hip Hop Exoticism.” How could this exist? And how could it possibly successfully mix such styles?
We don’t have the answers to these questions but can confidently say that we’re fully intrigued. This first release, “Mystic Grind,” certainly delivers on the synopsis – it’s a surf-influenced exploration of hip-hop break beats and it only gets more interesting with each remix that is provided. There’s not a whole lot more to say about this one yet but we can’t resist recommending that you follow this project immediately.
