While we gear-up for our vinyl launch with LTR001 ft. Potentz and LTR002 ft. MistaKay, we decided to throw some tunes your way just for stopping by to check us out. This free release sort of sums up the ethos of our label, and features 2 of our artists who will have vinyl releases with us in the future.
We stand on the line between Grime and Dubstep, but always manage to stay experimental and forward thinking while taking cues from the past. Every tune we release will have room for a grime or hip-hop emcee to fit in the mix, but they're powerful enough to stand on their own without a vocal.
Our first 2 vinyl releases will feature UK artists, and this freebie features two of our USA artists, Cyntel & PBN (aka PeanutButterNightmare). Both of these producers are prolific in their own world.
PBN, Buffalo, NY native, now living in San Diego, CA has been releasing hip-hop and trap beats for a few years, stacking up some major production credits. We've been paying close attention to his dubstep & grime tunes though, and we're proud to be rolling out his melodic and moody explorations here at Low Tide.
Cyntel, what can we even say about this production wizard? This dude is insane. Coming out of Oakland, CA, Cyntel has been one of our favorite producers for years. Not many can touch the depth of his moods and experimental sounds. Low Tide labelboss Stuntman claims to "put him on the level of Aphex Twin with how twisted his sounds are", even though he's too humble to ever take that seriously. Look out for a Cyntel vinyl for LTR003, but for now chew on this one...
Hold tight to all the vinyl heads, and be on the look out for Potentz - Summerjam EP on 12" this summer over at White Peach.
