Hip Hop has been getting a fair amount of bad press in recent weeks. Yet, up and coming Trap artist Lavish has released his latest single “Mud Monster” to prove that contemporary Hip Hop doesn’t have to be self-aggrandized or crass. With so much soul injected into the alchemically textured mix, the soundscape of the downtempo melodies is all too easy to slip into.
After the short but sweet track fades to a close it becomes apparent that you don’t get much of a choice whether you allow Mud Monster to resonate. Around excessive amounts of synth reverb, the rattle and kicks of the 808’s feed into the ambient multi-layered beats leaving the vocals clean. The end result could only be described as hypnotic.
