heRobust "Shawty Swing My Way (Busted)"
Last month, we posted a track from the Atlanta/London duo Mane Mane and now we've gotten our hands on a track from the Atlanta half of the duo, producer heRobust, who has just released a new EP entitled Albumin (artwork above). "Shawty Swing My Way (Busted)" finds heRobust utilizing the vocals from K.P. & Envyi's '90s hit "Swing My Way" to lead the track as he crafts disjointed, bit-crushed future-hip-hop below. The vocals are, surprisingly, not chopped and screwed to oblivion but rather presented as an intergal part of the song, along with a whirlwind of spacey synths and dark bass. Shuffling hi-hats skip between a steady kick and snare that take on the head-nodding duties essential to any artist that bears the tag "21st-century-beat-music." Albumin is available for a "pay what you want" price over at Saturate's Bandcamp.
