Stop sleeping on The Kickdrums.
The Ohio (now Brooklyn) duo have been on their grind for several years now, doing production for the likes of Kid Cudi and Slaughterhouse, and dropping my (still) favorite album of 2009, Just A Game. Last week the duo dropped their latest mixtape, titiled The Ghost Tape in anticipation for their full length LP Meet Your Ghost which drops on June 28th.
Everyone wants to combine rock and rap these days, but the Kickdrums get it right. Their vintage (check the fuzz on the gutars and the orchestrals) sound blends easily on their more indie influenced tracs as well as their hip-hop production.
