RL Grime "Grapes Alla Vodka"
The Wedidit collective is home to a number of talented beatmakers, including Groundislava, eLan, Jonwayne (who helmed our latest podcast), and frequent XLR8R subject Shlohmo. Today, the crew is dropping its first official release, a solo effort by New York City native RL Grime. The Grapes EP is his debut release, and opening cut "Grapes Alla Vodka" is a big, brash, and addictive slice of Houston-flavored crunk anchored by a gargantuan synthesizer that drips a spooky, syrup-laden melody over the jam's flickering claps and cymbals. To celebrate the release, Wedidit has created 100 iron-on patches featuring RL Grime's tombstone logo that are available when you purchase the digital package, which also features remixes from Shlohmo, Salva, LOL Boys, and Groundislava. Grab "Grapes All Vodka" below, and stream the new EP in its entirety after the jump.
