Hype Williams – Find Out What Happens When People Stop Being Polite and Start Gettin’ Reel
Hype Williams is weird. Not hip hop videos Hype, the beat/mash up group. At the base level, it’s a beat album, with some 80’s synths, vocal samples, fuzz, reverb, and reverence to old shit…..oh, and bass. What I like it that they aren’t super obvious with it….very organic. It’s really hard to explain, but they had to be straight blunted on something incredibly heavy (laced with some heavier) to even make this – it’s wild as shit. This is where I’m glad YouTube exists. The Sade cover is one of the illest tracks I’ve heard this year….it’s like they record some chick doing drunk karaoke, and laid a beat on it, on a shitty 4-track….but it’s super dope. Highly recommended – one of my personal favorite albums/EPs of the year. I know next to nothing about this (possible) duo. There isn’t a lot of concrete info on him, her, them….but I’m looking forward to the next release, if there is a next one.
