These 2 English Blokes Are My New Favorite Group: Pete & Bas - "Speeding"

 


I'll be honest, friends. I'm at that stage in life where rap is REALLY boring to me. I find myself listening to older catalog stuff but the whole Migos cadence over trap beats is MEGA played out (no disrespect to Migos). Rap has never been at a point where everything actually sounds the same. I'm not the old guy complaining about the young kids music, am I? I think it's easy to replicate easy to mix into DJ sets, easy to forget who you're listening to. Easy. I get it. But I need variety. 

There are some people coming up I really like and enjoy but the majority of submissions I get for blogs and playlists are pretty bad. So I was scrolling on IG one day and found this video snippet of some dudes named Pete & Bas on a track called "the Old Estate". At first I thought it was some older guys just lip syncing on the track to make a cool video but I was wrong. They're not only actually rapping but these blokes have some BARS.

This is the newest video and man, I'm a proper fan lol I went back and listened to some of their other music and forreal I'm a fan. I'm starting to get back into the English scene (grime, drill, etc) and it's so refreshing to hear something different. Thank you, Pete & Bas. Would love to work with them someday on some marketing over here across the pond.

Anyway, press play and enjoy.

Neon Artery is TOO Funky! OMG

 



So I'm executive producing a movie (story for another post) and I've been going through playlists. By genre, by mood, anything. I eventually stumbled upon this horrorwave playlist which lead me to synthwave. I had it on while I went on a long walk around the neighborhood the other day to get some fresh air and this song came on and I felt like...damn, this is too funky.

Like...

YO, this is INSANE. Like this makes me want to be in a montage then whip through an abandoned city at night in a lamborghini on my way to rescue a woman from a hoard of zombies and an evil villain after everyone thought I was dead. Like bad-ass retro, cheesy line-saying fresh shit.

The change up at 1:20 is wild.

Found out Sung is a Korean dude in Paris. Killed it with this.

Listen below. Support the dude.
