The art of making beats in general is a crucial backbone to most music these days. It what gives the tune that extra weight, that moody feel, and that sense of excitement. Lucky for us, beat-oriented tunes are tried and true, and are here to stay. Dubstep, house, trip-hop, you name it. They all rely on the beats to carry them forward. However, there are producers in the shadows who make non-mainstream lacings that contribute to the genre defying mindset of forward thinking beatsmiths.
Enter TEK.LUN (Rashad Williams), one of the newest members of the growing L.A. label HuhWhat&Where Recordings which has the powerful arsenal of established producers such as Kaytranada, Ta-ku, and Falcons. He is originally from Baltimore, Maryland, which says something since his tunes has caught people's attention on the flip side of the country. Today, we at EARMILK bring you a first look at "Wurly", a song off of his impending album Ridin' Round that will hit the masses on March 31.
"Wurly" has pulsating and warping synths that creates an almost futuristic vibe, like a whirl wind of effects that revolve around percussion. It would be quite reminiscent to the synth play of fellow label mate Evil Needle if it wasn't for the sudden entrance of sampled, vocal interjections and the pick up in tempo. It's a dynamic beat loop with massive replay value, much like the two teaser songs already released. Stream "Wurly" below, and to save you the time and trouble, we've added the previously released songs from Ridin' Round as well.
