There’s one man that’s elevating electronic dance music to a place that it’s never been, and that’s Destructo. With his West Coast EP [iTunes link], the Los Angeles producer, luminary, and scene leader literally builds an entirely new genre and changes the game in the process. Destructo’s “G-House” seamlessly merges the bright bravado and lyrical prowess of West Coast hip-hop with old school house music’s slick bouncy beats.
He taps into sizzling chemistry with a slew of legendary MCs and modern superstars. YG and Destructo wild out on the sexy “Party Up”, which could be the perfect soundtrack for The Hangover IV.
Ty Dolla Sign lends his silky and seductively smooth voice to the slick banger, while Warren G makes a spirited cameo of his own. However, it’s “Dare You 2 Move”, which delivers the biggest hook and has all the makings of a bona fide crossover smash. One of Los Angeles’s brightest and most brilliant young talents Problem serves up a hilarious and hook-y story of a wild night, volleying between spitfire verses and a gigantic refrain. This is bound to be huge, and it deserves to be. In addition, the title track showcases Destructo’s immense talent as well and his undeniable knack for a smash.
The West Coast has never sounded like this, and Destructo drops one of the most revolutionary releases of 2014.
