New York City’s FATHERDUDE matched up with Joell Ortiz for the ear-dropping club banger “Why I Can’t Relate.” Produced by Konrad Abramowicz, the sultry instrumental and chorus set an eclectic nightlife mood with the verses providing space to breath.
The EP is available now on iTunes and Spotify, with “Why I Can’t Relate” being far more slow and sensual compared to his second single, “No Complaints.”
Both are great examples of what the NYC musician has in his wheelhouse. The Balance presents such a dynamic range of talent that doctors should refer to his album to diagnose paraplegics.
The Balance was premiered on Billboard with a handful of international production efforts. Joell Ortiz splits the dancestrumental with braggadocious verses and clever wordplay. Lines like “Blogs is like spiders tryin’ to spin you but my bread right, so keep your trap I don’t fuck with your websites,” which will make writer’s heads bob all while throwing them in an existential crisis.
An insightful interview done by Vintage Guap of Futureclassics, it’s safe to say that FATHERDUDE is as wholesome a person as he is an artist, obliged to fuck aliens and launch presidential candidates off medieval siege weapons. While TrueToo typically covers hip-hop and R&B, it’s as if most producers stray away from the genre due to the niche, closed-offedness rap can carry. It’s different for this NYC artist however, as he’s taking todays trends and capitalizing on a broader range of efforts.
While The Balance should be considered EDM for the most part, the production behind the tracks follows the same wavelength as SaveMoney’s Towkio, a Chicago-based rapper who’s dropping bars behind summertime dance instrumentals.
