Seriously, does this holiday madness never end? I think we all know Funkadelphia made Santa’s “Nice” list this year, but no one could have seen this typhoon of FREE music headed our way.
Adding to the mix is West Coast producer Perkulat0r, who is helping to keep California’s futuristic hip-hop vibes fresh and original. Perkulat0r’s sound is far from a classic hip-hop approach. Rather, the complete opposite, swarming the eardrums with jostling glitched out percussion sections and ricocheting bass layers. All of Perkulat0r’s sound design remains fresh and original throughout the EP, not once falling into the pothole of cliche and overused noises.
Perkulat0r’s compositions maintain complexity through their off-tempo beat patterns and glitched drums, but the style never reaches a point of over-bearing ridiculousness. Every bass kick, every note, every hi-hat hit, every synthesizer line is calm and formulaic in a delightfully unfamiliar manner.
