Tyler Giordani and Chad Smith from Halifax return to our feeds in a big way. Today marks the release of Major Threats from dope on their home label, Saturate Records. It's a sprawling 8-track EP which features four pounding originals and four equally intoxicating remixes from Starkey, Dj Ride, Smoakland, and SIGKILL.
Tracks like “Murkin'” and “Issavibe” really underscore the duo's dedication to left-field hip-hop. The title track is tailor made for Saturate with its ultra-fuzzy, overpowering synths and the beeps and boops of robotic runs. “Construct” might be my favorite track on the EP, with its progressive sound and off-kilter vibe. Of course the legend Starkey runs in with a haunting, cinematic take that's completely unexpected, and Dj Ride goes party time on his reworking.
We're still staying optimistic and counting down the days until these east coast Canadian boys can join us at The Untz Festival 2021 on the west coast. Pray for those big, bad pharmaceutical companies for us.
