Mr. Carmack is back and he’s bringing the vibes. Just over a month after releasing his heavy-hitting CHAOS EP, the veteran beatmaker blesses fans with the four-track HOMETOWN HEROES EP. ‘GOD (MUSIC)’ sets the bar high from the outset. The Dilip-assisted heater is the perfect blend of cinematic, epic, and banging. The first half balances gritty trap vibes, punchy bass, and angelic vocals, while the latter portion is a breezy sunfilled groove. Connecting with AbJo & antonioiswho comes FORTALEZA a laidback baile bop that’s anchored by the cool keys and upbeat percussion. The title track serves as a rap anthem with Jordan Dennis sliding into the spotlight and stealing the show with smooth and swag-packed bars. The backing is summery and dancey providing the perfect canvas for the emcee. Closing things out comes ‘PARANA’ a trippy off-kilter bop that’ll put you in a trance and have you moving. The elements are dark and heavy while somehow remaining inviting and approachable.
HOMETOWN HEROES is yet another reminder as to why Mr. Carmack is one of the best out. Listen below.
