LA-based beat maestro Ahwlee has released a brand new EP titled dead[ist]. As one half of B. Cool-Aid (with Pink Siifu) as well as releasing some fantastic projects in the past, it’s always good seeing him come through with another thumping project.
It’s non stop boom-bap madness throughout the entire project. From the thumping opener “thetrial.” with its infectious percussion and heavy beat to the soulful and beautifully sampled closer “ye.”, Awhlee is able to find his groove brilliantly. The more soulful cuts such as “oldtownb” are balanced with more hard-hitting cuts such as “spurs*|luckwldhaveit” and the gritty “queasy.” Overall, Ahwlee has released absolute head once again, which is not surprising in the slightest, but it’s still great hearing him tear shit up on record.
