Seppa, Rasp-5, & Lone Drum Collide On Genre-Bending New Track “Dripper”
In today’s musical landscape the boundaries between genres have become increasingly blurred. When artists focus on creativity and authenticity, phenomenal collaborations and inventive new projects can spring forth from this fertile sonic environment. One such collaboration has swelled from the ranks of The Rust Music with Slug Wife co-founder Seppa, enlisting the talents of New York emcee Rasp-5 and London-based scratch master Lone Drum on the new single “Dripper”.
“Dripper” is a ferocious and gritty collision of leftfield bass and old-school hip-hop. Seppa’s murky low-end frequencies rattle through the speakers as Rasp-5 oscillates between flows keeping listeners off balance yet hypnotized. The track drips with menacing angst while also maintaining a capriciousness that results in an intriguing amalgamation. Hard-as-nails yet irresistibly smooth, “Dripper” creeps and swings with old-school style and new school verve. Lone Drum steals the show with his ridiculous scratching salvo that adds even more heat to an already incendiary concoction. Chopped-and-screwed vocals interplay well with percussive elements reminiscent of golden-era rap as the single comes to a close.
“Dripper” is the audacious product of three artists combining at the top of their game. The trio gives a nod to the past while remaining focused on the future, blending sonic dialects with masterful precision.
