DRS [Daily Recording Shit] is a beat music community based out of Japan. The crew is composed of beat makers Ballhead, elamp, 6-SenS, Blackshadow, 2seam, and sszzaa.
DRS and Raund Haus join forces on this release due to the common goal of releasing quality music and connections between co-founder Gappa Mighty and the beat scene out in Japan. Once again calling on beat maker and visual artist, j0eru, for the cover art, we got to see the artist work alongside DRS in what became an international and cross-cultural vision come to fruition.
"Beats are chopped, staggered, gated, and filtered to the edge of structural cohesion, and sometimes beyond; samples are strangled, pitches are shifted, and playback speeds are erratic, as though running over dirty tape heads. Silence is a snare drum. Stereo space is a Möbius strip.
....elamp, who generally likes to wreath tough-talking rap verses in woozy samples and bullet-hole-ridden frequencies. He’s joined by the rest of the beat-making crew—Ballhead, 6-SenS, Blackshadow, 2seam, and sszzaa—who bring a variety of styles to bear.
At one point, 6-SenS smuggles in a deconstructed-brostep vibe, while on “Wolf_s blood,” holographic record scratches fly off a moody ‘80s video-game theme.
2seam is more of a classicist, a stone’s throw away from a Stones Throw compilation, while sszzaa scores a poppy highlight with “Hostel,” cutting hard into a snake-charming melody.
Ballhead favors a kind of ankle-twisting strut through junkyard funk, while Blackshadow stands out by hewing closer to full songs than the evocative fragments and interstitials that pervade the album. " - Brian Howe (INDY WEEK)
