South African producer Jon Casey is definitely one of the top artists to look out for in 2017. As half of It Hz. he’s been killing it on the low with monster tunes like ‘Walking Dread’ and ‘Murdah’. Flexing his solo chops comes the impressive Rockefeller EP. The 4 track offering is a rugged, bass-heavy beast. ‘Kaboom’ sets the tone with an aggressive, industrial laced explosion. As you pick peices of shrapnel out of your ears, the title track drifts in, smooth and classy before drifting into a raw trap romp. ‘Kyuu’ burns slow but hits like a dust-laced blunt. One minute everything is groovy, the next you’re in a different dimension. ‘Octane’ rounds the project out with more pounding bass and insane sound design. It’s the audio equivalent of fighting Samurai warriors on a mountain top at dawn.
TL;DR: Jon Casey’s Rockefeller EP fucking bangs. Stream below and cop it on Slow Roast Records.
