Rising producer JD. Reid has followed up his compilation of loosies with a proper EP, io. It's out this Friday April 8 on Rinse, and one of the standouts is “Rōshi” featuring grime lifer D Double E (who just shared a new project of his own.)
“Rōshi” is a supernova with sinogrime and the L.A. beat scene fueling its scattered synth bursts, with Double E focusing the energy into a futuristic hustler's anthem. His lyrics pledge the secrets of longevity: dodge your social and economic trappings, but most all “Start the journey and stick to that.” Stream all of JD. Reid's new EP io over on Soundcloud.
