Over the summer EDM trap-pioneering production duo, TNGHT, helped define an explosive subgenre with their self-titled EP and several massive mixes. Both members, Lunice and Hudson Mohawke, expressed their desire to reach out and work with rappers. Thus far, we have seen Mohawke work with several hip-hop acts, most notably Kanye West on Cruel Summer.
The Montreal-based half, Lunice, has also been hard at work producing for several up ‘n coming emcees. His latest release, “Gimme That,” features NYC’s Angel Haze, yet another example of a quality female artist in a genre that has traditionally lacked them. The trap influence on Lunice’s instrumental is evident through out with 808, kick-driven percussion and epic synth melodies. Haze delivers an absolute verbal assault continuing the compelling case for further collaboration between EDM trap and hip-hop.
“Gimme That” is part of Yours Truly’s “Songs from Scratch” series and serves as a great pick me up to get you over the Wednesday hump. Stream it below and head over to Yours Truly to watch a dope documentary on the making of this one.
Bonus: Check out another recent Lunice-produced hip-hop cut with Deniro Farrar and Shady Blaze, a sort of trap ballad with an effective autotune chorus and some pretty solid verses.
