JOYRYDE has been red hot lately with his cutting-edge productions and sleek music videos..not to mention the Skrillex co-sign he received after dropping his debut OWSLA single, "Hot Drum". His latest output is titled "DAMN" and it features Indiana-based rapper Freddie Gibbs who has worked with some of the best in electronic music including Flume and Zeds Dead.
On his latest tune, JOYRYDE grabbed a previously released verse from Freddie Gibbs. The hip-hop heavyweight jumps in between the brass booms and hollow plucks with his lyrical flow. The production takes on a much more minimal approach than Joyryde's previous works, leaving for great emphasis on the vocal.
"After I made the instrumental for this record, I found it very hard to fit a vocal on it. Most verses I tried were lazy and too 'styled out'. Freddie’s vocal crushed it. The man has a serious sense of rhythm in his bars. Gettin' that green light from them for the feature made this record." — Joyryde
We've been mapping JOYRYDE's journey since last year with releases like "Give My Love", "Fuel Tank" and "Maximum King". The Los Angeles is heading into the new year strong, but will be making a noteworthy stop at New York on Dec. 30 to perform at Webster Wall for what will undoubtedly be an incredible show with his full stage production. You can grab your tickets for that here. Stream "DAMN" feat. Freddie Gibbs below, in addition to the song's super slick video. Enjoy!
