Over the past month Kai Straw has been releasing singles off his anticipated Toothpick album. Last night at 8PM PST, he dropped his album in full through his own imprint Tenth Gate Records, whose roster includes the producer for this album, James The Bear. Together these two put together an incredible album whose sound takes from funk, hip-hop and indie.
Ten tracks make up Toothpick, a dynamically expressive LP whose content largely focuses around the love-lust dichotomy that plagues the millennial generation. This theme is broken by tracks like “The Business” which is an anthem for the Bay Area, where Kai calls home. This is also the only track with features, as Kai collaborated with fellow veterans Keak Da Sneak and Roach Gigz. Throughout the album Kai manages, as always, to utilize his uncanny ability to formulate the thoughts of his generation, while displaying them through one-of-a-kind musical creations. Give Toothpick a genuine listen through, we guarantee you won’t be disappointed. If you’re looking to dive in a crazy rabbit hole of lots of intriguing tales and records, then you should check out his entire discography on his website.
There’s one record label out there that is really starting to make some waves out there with unique sounds form hidden gem artists. That label is Terrorhythm. Most recently this London label put out an EP called Meltdown from the Australian ZEKE BEATS. ZEKE’s already had releases with Slow Roast, Saturate and more, but his EP with Terrorhythm is his best work yet.
Meltdown is comprised of four records that formulate a special mixture of dubstep, trap, trip-hop and more into one project. The title track comes first with an aggressive grit that will satisfy any basshead out there. Next he gets a bit more gamer influenced with “The Freq” and gets dirty with “BDSM” that is one of the only tracks that the squeak sample is appropriate for. “Virtual Purple” closes out the EP with its thugged out sound. All four tracks are hits in and of themselves, and together in one package they make for quite an extraordinary extended listen.
