5. Croxz – High Volume
I’m a sucker for a guitar. This was my first time hearing of this artist and he really impressed me. With a heavy metal guitar riff intro and and an adlib declaring, “This should be played at High Volume” a choppy drop fills the room. “but, I still love you” the second adlib, in a computer like voice states, adding mystery to the track. Great addition to the EP.
4. SCRVP & Evix FT Duelle – Gravitate
Giving us all the feels with the soothing vocals of Duelle and a phenomenal future bass beat, Gravitate is a stand out on the EP. Inspiration and moving lyrics is what the EP needs to embody everything Houston stood for during this time!
3. FVCKDIVMONDS Ft. SMPLYPUT – Dancefloor Killa
Uff! a house track that anyone can groove to! The supreme G house vibes and utterly dance worthy melody could make an 80 year old grandma move their hips. it’s an uplifting beat which is everything the EP needs!
2. M.E. Swank- Random
Swank is a Houston native that went through Hurricane Harvey and knows first hand the damage and destruction it caused. Swank is not only an incredible Houston Local but displays his nact for production through this insanely well produced track that hits hard and makes you feel like you’re on an adventure through an arcade game.
1. Bailo Ft Alice France – The World Is Yours
This track is our favorite for SO many reasons, which should be the case in choosing a favorite. For one, when have we ever heard Bailo make a future bass or pop-ish track? I can’t recall ever hearing it but we get to hear it on this EP and it’s as great as any fan would hope for. Two, this track captures the essence of emotions and strength that Houston displayed when uniting together and helping each other get through such a tragic time. Thank you Bailo!
