Blood Diamonds released a new EP off OWSLA’s label the other day. I did not find the EP to be all that great. It was one orignal song titled “Barcode,” while the rest of the EP consisted of remixes from a wide array of artists. I found most of the songs to be quite boring to be honest. Not the best OWSLA release, but something different for sure. The one gem in this EP to me was Figure’s remix of Barcode. Usually a song that has any type of rap in it isn’t my style, but figure but a nice hard twist on the song. Figure’s style is pretty consistent for the most part, and in this remix he featured some sped up vocals, and multiple voice distortions and funky hard beats. While the drop is very sped up and intense, there are moments in this song that are very soft and soothing. Just when you feel the song undergoes a calmness to it, the words AK47 come piercing back, and heavy sounds of Figure come about once again. It reminds of me drops in a roller coaster that you didn’t see coming. It is surprising but also very exhilarating. Definitely a very different kind of song for me to post, but this song really caught my attention, and I’m sure it will catch yours.
