The synth-laden soundscapes of heRobust’s latest two-part release, Late Night and Morning After (Saturate Records), offer a pounding blueprint of more to come from the talented young Atlanta producer Hayden Kramer. With word buzzing of another release lined up for early March, titled Unda, heRobust has been hard at work merging his signature soulful glitch and slam with more smooth R&B, boom bap, jazzy melodies, and warbling bass lines. The celestial sound has been reverberating both locally, as heard at the recent 529 show where he performed alongside another up-and-coming Atlanta producer/auteur Ethereal, and internationally, courtesy the notable remix of his single "Grief Case," from his 2010 debut Albumin, by UK producer Starslinger.
The loops and synths on all 16 tracks are so dense and complex it's impossible to get a full sense of each on the first run-through, so do as the titles suggest and listen in digestible chunks: Make one your mind-altering Late Night soundtrack and the other a smooth pick-me-up for that regrettable Morning After.
I would say that Adron is the city's most liked indie artist. I've never heard…
um...the posters name is Buttercrup, not Buttercup.
Why is that? I don't begrudge the Progression of the Artform... I begrudge the Educational…
Thank you for the catch, Buttercup. Her name has been corrected.
These underground NY rappers need to take their sound back to NY...circa 1987!
um, her name is Hayley Williams, not Griffin.
