The realm of glitch-hop never ceases to amaze me. Home for some of the best producers in the world, this versatile genre continues to evolve and expand its influence into other genres. As Tipper continues to bring the genre to new heights with each release, HeRobust takes his glitch-hop influences and sprinkles them on top of a hard 2-step beat leaving us with some of the most innovative, gangster grooves out there. Welcome to the world of Future Ratchet/”Genres don’t mean diddly squat now-a-days.”
Maybe you’ve caught trap fever like many who tirelessly follow the hottest music coming out. Trap is nothing new to the hip-hop/rap world, but trap beats fused with identifiable electronic production is trending like none other at the moment. What’s not to like? Hip-hop steez mixed with bouncy electronica stabs and melodies gives everyone—hip-hop and bass heads alike—something to get down to…The perfect marriage to appease my taste in music.
Lemme let you in on a little somethin’, somethin’. HeRobust is absolutely DEFECATING on his competition. Give me an artist and I can usually place him or her in a league of similar artists. HeRobust is truly in a league of his own. I simply cannot think of another producer quite on Hayden Kramer’s grind.
This Saturday (8/11), HeRobust will take a break from touring the South and East Coast to come all the way to San Diego (!!!!!) and set up shop in SPIN Nightclub. Courtesy of our friends over at Elev8, we get to immerse ourselves in the hottest bass music being made…yet again. Just days ago, this ATLien dropped his “Rob & Hood EP.” And in true “steal from the rich and give to the poor” fashion, he released the EP for FREE. This is perfect timing for us San Diegans, as he’s sure to unload some new ammunition at the show this Saturday.
