Hip-hop and electronic music have been the two leading genres during the augmentation of internet entertainment, and the two have been expected to conjoin themselves with great anticipation. However, I myself have not seen the experiment succeed in endless attempts over the last few years, first with emcees like Sammy Adams and then to "here and there" drops of electro in big name (yet shameful) artists like Pitbull and Flo Rida. I never thought I would mention their names here, but Shàn Vincent de Paul makes these dudes tremble with his properly executed electro mesh with La+ch.
"Some Girls" isn't just an excerpt of modern production with a verse recorded over it, it's a collaboration between lyricism and production. There are moments the song turns corners into new breakdowns, but the overall performance of the two musicians is unmistakably collaborative just upon a meer first listen. I shared La+ch's new single "Nights" at the beginning of this month, but it's always enjoyable for me to see my favorite producers team up with worthy emcees.
Take a listen to Shàn Vincent de Paul's new track "Some Girls" now, and step into the new wave of electro-hop.
