Grabbing our attention back in 2015 with their hard hitting trap-house creation titled “Get Down”, alongside with Swagglerock, Jameston Thieves and YOOKiE are at it again, but this time with a wonky, hard hitting, EP titled Freshkimo, available today for purchase via Beatport, iTunes, and Spotify.
Last week teasing Freshkimo with their first single released as a free download, “Xanax
Pancakes” kicks off the EP with an industrially cinematic tone, drawing
one in as laser piercing synths and deep bass snarls induce a wonky
trip. As one begins to regain their bearings, self titled “Freshkimo”
grabs hold of the reigns, nose diving into a maniacal state of textured
rhythms, swerving between sinister, low growls and airy pitch bends.
Rising to a transiently melodious plateau, “Trippin 4 U”, constantly
veers to the left as plucked keys are replaced with face-melting stabs
and weighty wubs. Leaving no room for hesitation, appropriately
titled “Bonkerz” knocks one back down for one final assault, riddled
with swift onslaughts of high energy and ruthless sound design.
Starting off the new year strong, both Jameston Thieves & YOOKiE are only on the come up from here.
