Hard Mix "Callers"
- Words: Patric Fallon
Delivered quite unassumingly on his Tumblr page, "Callers" is a fresh, beat-centric single from South Carolina producer Noah Smith (a.k.a. Hard Mix), which apparently won't be featured on the forthcoming split 7" he's dropping with fellow beat maker Star Slinger via Double Denim. Not unlike his partner-in-crime-to-be, Smith's tune appropriates some uncredited source material—mostly vocal clips, which are promptly warped into oblivion—and applies those sounds to skittering hip-hop beats that are simultaneously head-knocking and poignant. And he does it well, too, so if "Callers" won't be found on Hard Mix's first physical release, we can only imagine the caliber of the tracks he's saving for his auspicious first record.
