Addison Groove & Sam Binga - Rzor
Sam Binga is quickly carving a unique niche for himself in the world of 160+ bpm music by skillfully combining footwork and DnB with a dash of trap music. Though the trio often share tempo, there has until recently been a distinct lack of hybridization between the three, more often than not limited to acknowledgement by way of a stray break in the case of trap or perhaps a distinctive juke snare rhythm in drum and bass. However, 'Rzor' off of Binga's collaborative EP with established producer Addison Groove provides an excellent case for further exploration of this mixture. The track's frantic sub stabs and ever-building percussion do credit to its various genres of origin while simultaneously giving life to something truly fresh.
