The L.A. beat scene is chock full of producers and artists alike with a wide breadth and depth of talent in a multitude of different genres and subgenres within electronic music. Although L.A. is a spread out city, the artists and people who associate with the beat scene have formed a tight knit community where everybody knows everyone inside the community to some extent. Previously on EARMILK we have posted about up-and-coming producer AWE, whose unique blend of dubstep, trap, and elements of trance has caught the attention of the producing world by storm, but what we haven’t posted about is the acts that AWE strongly associates with and which make up the collective he is a part of. Going by the name of Swerve Squad, the producer collective has been hard at work leading up to the release of their second compilation tape. One of the leaders of the group and close friends of AWE, Yung Orca and Lord Olaf, have been building up the hype for the tape with the release of the “Yoloboyz Anthem,” a hard hitting trap beat with a menacing sub bass and a nasty drum pattern that makes you just want to pump your elbows. Olaf and Orca are assisted by Swerve Squad affiliate Swaqqy Dolphin, who adds his own touch to the track.
Overall, Yung Orca, Lord Olaf, and Swaqqy Dolphin deliver a club-ready track that shows that they mean business and are vying for their own share of the spotlight that their fellow member is already enjoying.
