Brooklyn's noise rap trio RATKING is one of the most exciting acts to rise out of the New York hip-hop scene, managing to incorporate aspects of boom-bap, grime, and electronic music in order to craft some of the most unique sounding hip-hop right now.
The group has decided to rework Phantogram's stellar "Fall in Love" single, turning the indie-pop single into a gritty New York hip-hop affair. Wiki, Hak, and Sporting Life use the stuttering beat to express their undying love of hip-hop and the struggles faced when rising in the music scene. Sporting Life's aptitude as a producer is put on full display as he deconstructs the original's electro-pop instrumental turning into a minimal trap-collage of sound, using Sarah Barthel's vocal as the centerpiece.
