3G Internet – KRASH: An Anti-Pop Alt-Hip-Hop Debut to Lose Your Head To

3G Internet, the Experimental Hip Hop/Anti-Pop duo from Northeast Ohio, literally crashed into the music scene with ‘KRASH’, a track from their debut EP that defies convention with maximum conviction.

KRASH is a 7-minute audacious trip that rips up the rules and scatters the ashes of mundanity through the harsh tonal hues that pay an ode to the legacy of Death Grips and JPEGMAFIA. It’s a chaotic blend of gritty, glitchy electronic distortions and 8-bit landscapes, that makes no apology for launching an assault on the senses.

It’s a whirlwind of ideas, each vying for attention, yet somehow harmoniously coexisting. The duo’s disregard for industry norms is evident in every beat, every synth, and every lyric. In short, KRASH is a  ballad of the bizarre.

The duo’s approach to music is refreshingly honest. They pursue every idea, no matter how outlandish, and the result is a track that’s as authentic as it is avant-garde. In a world where music often feels manufactured and soulless, KRASH is a breath of caustically fresh air.

The debut EP is now available to stream on Spotify.

Breakfast time gets Dangerous(X) with Honey Nut Cheerios

Lighthearted, sample-filled, with a non-stop flow that’s in your face from start to finish, ‘Honey Nut Cheerios’ is 1’18” of ‘statement of intent’ hip hop from DangerousX, all rapid-fire hi hat triplets and thunderous bass kick behind DangerousX’s aural assault.

Sure, there’s an Eminem/Shady vibe going on, the lyrical content turning slights into ‘rap-fuel’ in the way Marshall Mathers does so well, spitting out put-downs over the heavyweight backing. Sadly, it’s over too quickly, but ‘Honey Nut Cheerios’ shows some real promise here; keep an eye out for DangerousX – who knows where he’ll end up.

Listen to ‘Honey Nut Cheerios’ on Soundcloud; check out DangerousX on Instagram.
