96Wrld "Pirmas Rudeninis"
Lithuanian outpost Renegades of Bump has just released the third installment of its Ritmo Kovos compilation series, a 22-track collection which covers a broad spectrum of sounds ranging from Fingalick's duck-sampling "Farm" to the soulful trap-fusion of Papuga's "Need Sugar." Another creatively playful number comes from 96Wrld, whose "Clark" tune ranked at #74 on our list of the Top 100 Downloads of 2012. The title of his "Pirmas Rudeninis" track (which translates to English as "The First Autumn") might connote gentler vibes, but it's actually far from a mellow tune. 96Wrld's peak-time banger is propelled by intricate, flaring snares and topped with a Duck Hunt-inspired synthesizer. If that happens to pique your interest, be sure to grab the whole compilation for free, here, or donate to Renegades of Bump over on its Bandcamp.
