Out today, Boom Bap & Beyond is Shiftee’s first entry in the & Beyond series, a 3 chaptered audio/visual project rooted in pushing the envelope on the sounds and styles that birthed his unique style.
The EP features four of the best rappers running the underground today. “Van Full Of Drugs” has LA’s Manus recounting wild times, while Fly Kaison takes the piss out of rap music with “Dumb Shit.” Kash Tha Kushman hails from Danny Brown’s hallowed Bruiser Brigade and brings full aggro energy to “I SiiiP.” Andre Martel rounds out the EP on “I Wanna Be Like Mase,” leveraging a diverse background to paint an upbeat, laid back, and wonderfully nostalgic picture of hip hop’s yesteryear.
Boom Bap & Beyond finds the world champion Brooklyn DJ/producer exploring the boundaries of rap & bass, taking it back to his roots as a world champion turntablist who has long had a foot in the underground electronic world. 4 original songs, 4 features, and 4 signature live performance videos – which will start surfacing next week! The result of the whole experience is vivacious & heavy, playful yet banging.
