Summer will always be synonymous with the sounds of boom-bap. Whether you spent the best months of the year having a cookout with the family or found yourself playing hoops all afternoon, the heavy drum breaks have always been part of the action. But even though these times are behind us, does not mean we have to put the genre back on the shelf for next year. Aiming to educate the new generation with that good ol’ Boom bap, Long Island emcee Peter Leo has crossed paths with producer/engineer Eitan Noyze to give us 12 classic sounding gems in the form of Energy Shift. “So Superb,” with it’s braggadocios, yet catchy rhymes from Peter and the always on point Styles P, is the joint that will make you nostalgic over those endless summer nights. Noyze’s stripped down, sublime production is a refreshing throwback for all of you heads that need a break from all of the Cloud and Trap Rap that’s been clogging the net. Check it out today, and pick up Energy Shift on iTunes, or give it a stream here, for a new take on some old Hip Hop fundamentals.
