Drae Da Skimask - Come Down

Drae Da Skimask

Come Down

Astral Black

Released: 19th February 2016 | 2 track southern rap/hip-hop ep

Since their inaguraual tape release (Jon Phonics' Rugers - also sold exclusively via Bleep), Astral Black have been responsible for the debut releases from some of the UK's most exciting new talent via their forays into everything from leaned-out trap, dancehall-infused club tracks, Grime & R&G edits & post-punk new wave. Their club night residencies in both London & Glasgow place the likes of scene superstars such as Danny Brown, Skepta, Knxwledge, Ryan Hemsworth & Slimzee (the list goes on) - alongside their next generation contemporaries, inside small capacity, often-free, spaces. A mix that, more often than not, leaves both artists & party-goers citing an experience unforgettable.

Who better then, to kick off the labels 3rd year than 19 year-old, London producer - Drae Da Skimask? A producer at the fore-front of a current new-wave of London producers dabbling in slow motion, 808-fuelled rap veats. ' Come Down' is Drae's third cassette release for the Astral Black label in just 6 months and similar to it's predecessor 'Au Loin Vol. 1' - demonstrates the young producers yearning to reach further and touch styles un-yet discovered through the familiar medium of sample chops and 808's.
