Labtekwon "Faraway Land"
From the latest album by Baltimore producer/MC Labtekwon, Next: Baltimore Basquiat and the Future Shock, comes this sample-based bit of clattering beat work. "Faraway Land" boasts some of the grimiest rhythms from the dustiest source material heard this side of a FlyLo production; the distorted booms of vinyl-ripped kicks bounce in tandem with click-clacking percussion sounds while the lyricist delivers calm and collected flows about... Well, we can't say for sure what Labtekwon is rapping about (we could guess it has something to do with foreign countries), but it's no matter—it all sounds quite good to us. And you can check a video for "Elevation," a much smoother track from the same Labtekwon album, after the jump.
