Among the slew of talent that has come across my desk in the past six months since launching all systems go on the latest edition of The Untz Festival, I've gotten pretty damn excited about Ethan Uellendahl. The Long Beach native has breezed into our lives thanks to the ThazDope Records crew, a solid crew with whom young Ethan will be touring hard in the coming months on the Wake The Nation tour as it makes its way across the country to Mariposa, California in early June for our festival. Smokestax is one of the leading figures on the tour, as well as the stage curated by the ThazDope family, and one that has caught the attention of many a promoter and fan from coast-to-coast.
Another label has stood up and saluted Mr. Uellendahl in the process. Funkadelphia is pleased to bring the talented Smokestax to Philly to support Mickman, and in the process, will be releasing the latest EP, Third Eye Therapy, to its hungry fan base. I'm such a miserly old bass fan, that I had to get my grubby paws on the single and share it with The Untz family, because it's too good to wait until the April 10th release date.
“Throwing Shade” is a bruiser of a tune. Low end growls and doom and gloom kicks and bass make this a peak hour banger with a sneering attitude. Its rough and tumble ways instantly drew me in, and make me want to devour everything in Ethan's catalog. And I might recommend you do the same. Catch him at the Mariposa County Fairgrounds from June 2-4 this summer right alongside me. You're welcome.
