Amp Live – Breathe (feat. Eligh)
Atmosphere, the latest offering via Gravitas Recordings from legendary hip-hop producer, Amp Live, from California. You might remember the Texas-born producer from the hip-hop duo Zion I. The new EP is really nice, combining elements of hip-hop surrounded by a patchwork of lush synthscapes and vibey rhythms. Amp has been in the music scene a while now, specifically in the hip-hop, reggae, and electronic music scenes. He’s collaborated with music luminaries such as Bassnectar, Too Short, Big Gigantic, Del The Funky Homosapien, Minnesota, Rebelution, and Gift of Gab. We were suppose to only post Breathe this time around, but we couldn’t help but showcasing the entire EP.
Breathe is one of our favorite tracks on the EP, with long-time collaborator Eligh making a guest appearance. Eligh sounds exactly like Andre 3000 from Outkast on this, and the glitched out beat has swing like no other that really creates a dynamic/moving feel to the entire track. This is the kind of rap that we think will propel the future of the genre.
Follow Amp Live on social media to see what he comes up with next. We love his style, and the man has a lot of history behind him. We’re excited to hear what collabs or projects of his own that he’s coming up with in the future.
