LORD RAJA – RUBIES EP
Hey, you there. Do you like squirty, hip-hop instrumentals with head snap percussion and guttural basslines? Of course you do. Best thing you could do would be to peep this free EP from Ghostly International producer, 20-year-old Chester Raj Anand aka Lord RAJA. It has a similar feel to Teebs in places (particularly third track ‘Panthera Bengal’) but it all has a bit more bite than the Californian Brainfeeder beat wizard. It came out in April but has only just tickled my attention nodes thanks to this fresh post on Soundcloud, a live 808 rework of opening track ‘Pistol Syrup.’
So yeah, no particularly new, but new to me. And that’s good enough. Enjoy.
