Hey gang! Another beautiful weekend tragically ripped way from us once again, which is why it’s so good you found your way back to your support group! NAPDNB understands. We too live the fabulous life of basking in the glory of not working our big kid jobs for two days in a row, so your struggle truly is… OUR struggle. And you know that’s why we bring you these here dope beats each and every week. You can count on us to be that bit of energy, sparkle of sunshine or general kick in the ass to get you back into grind. Speaking of grinding and being a little bit of sunshine, this week we’ve got Antik One bringing bright vibes direct to your ear holes!
Always known to be one to flex the depth of his crate during his sets, this weeks’ NAPCast show cases Antik in one of his groovier elements. While a Hoosier by blood, nothing can shake the southwest coast outta the dude and it’s flavor runs deep in the cut. Lots of hip hop licks and reggae riddim rounded out with playful soul groove. It literally IS cruising down the street with the top down on your low rider kinda groove. If you’ve spent any time with this rude boi. you’ll find out quite quickly that a secondary but equally important genre to him is reggae. His love of sound-clash especially draws upon his dedication to story telling or transmitting messages within his sets. You won’t find wildly opposing signals via the vocals in here but rather carefully curated points of importance lyrically. That’s not to say that the entire hour is packed full of militant jungle anthems either. Just the right balance of breezey summer time bass and vocals. Soundboy is here to educate you so get down wit it and make this Monday a most enjoyable one!
And don’t forget, we’ve got another great DRUM & BASSMENT this Saturday with our friends Renegagdes of Bass, the mysterious JimmyJimmySmalls. Support provided from resident, Knotice You’re not going to want to miss this one!
