I’ve been listening to this mixtape on and off the past week or so. It’s one of those albums that the more you listen to it, the more you like it. The Kickdrums are a duo of producers turned band, who have worked with the likes of Chip Tha Ripper. Brooklyn-based, these guys have a distinct sound that you probably can’t find anywhere else. The closest group I could think of would be Japanese Cartoon, sans all the hip-hop features. You guys remember Japaneses Cartoon, right? Lupe’s band where he had that dope British accent? Yeah, that didn’t last long.

Maybe I’ve been sleeping under a rock, but it seems like they had a bit of credibility before the album came out to be working with the likes of Machine Gun Kelly, UNI, and the one and only RZA. This may be one of the most unique  tapes I’ve ever downloaded just because there is so much indie-esque music and hip-hop being combined; it’s nearly flawless though. Every song on the album is worth listening to and it’s not like you’re only going to listen to this mixtape once; you’ll listen to it over and over just because you’re blown away by the perfect blending of hip-hop and other genres which makes this album incredibly eclectic.
