Devonwho "Cabbages (feat. Swarvy)"
- Words: Christian Santana
San Francisco beatsmith Devonwho welcomed summer 2012 by dropping Perfect Strangers Vol. 1 (the lead track from which you can listen to here), and now, he's following up that offering with the release of the series' second installment (artwork above). On "Cabbages," one of the tracks from the second Perfect Strangers collection, Devonwho teams up with Pennsylvania's Swarvy to craft a lumbering production equipped with a barrage of spacey synth washes. The beat showcases a mish-mash of different rhythmic influences mostly rooted in trap, while the lead melody and bassline shimmer with light dabs of purple dubstep. This self-release is available now over on Bandcamp, and precedes a new 12" that Devonwho has in the works for All City this fall.
