TNGHT | TNGHT
Trap music has swiftly taken the inch that Lex Luger opened up in the rap game and snuck in a couple of European house heads and a bottle of promethazine. And somehow I was next door, intrigued by the heavy bass and played out drops. That was months ago when cheap Houston riffs were being trotted out as a new genre.
TNGHT is a collaborative effort by the new digital boys Lunice and Hud Mo who manage to take the raw grittiness of a promising movement and elevate it to the level of genre defining bangers. The obvious face melter ‘Gooo’ is the heavy hitting grime-bop that is getting run through the mixtape spin cycle right now. But the short yet sweet ep manages to dig deep with ‘Higher Ground’. This complex mind melter displays proudly the versatility of the duo’s expansive production skills creating a fluid track sampling pieces of everything new touching the emotion of dub step, riding the builds of big boy house while seamlessly layering that over the heavy Houston percussive soundscape.
