Lockah and Taste Tester Announce Collaborative EP, Share First Single
- Words: Brad Stabler
Aberdeen-based bass alchemist Lockah and Atlanta-bred house wizard Taste Tester have announced the forthcoming release of Higher Learning, a collaborative EP for Activia Benz. Both producers have mined old-school house and neon pop music for their own solo productions before, so a proper collaboration manages to not only make sense, but seems likely to have been in the works for quite some time. The forthcoming effort is set to offer four heavily hip-hop inspired originals and a pair of remixes from DJ Booth and Slick Shoota. Higher Learning is due on June 24 via Activia Benz' Bandcamp, and will hit all digital music providers on July 1. In the meantime, shimmering lead single "U Don't Know Me" is streaming below.
