I’m in rare form tonight folks. I usually don’t post on the weekends at all but I was up working on music and checked the Under Sound email account and saw this jam. I also don’t usually post anything on this blog from people I don’t personally know but, again I’m in rare form tonight.
I don’t know anything about this dude Mario Dones really. I read in the email that was sent to us that this song is going to be a the label, The Sole Vibe‘s digital release this summer called One To Grow On. I usually give a listen to things sent to us just to see what’s up and every now and then we get something that regardless of if I know them or not, I feel like I should post it.
This song is pretty hot. Again, I don’t know much about this label or these dudes but I like this song. The beat is pretty sick. I like shit that combines samples and synths and this track does that well. It also has a really nice almost walking bassline. It kind of has a Dr. Dre feel to it even though it has those aforementioned samples.
And I like what Mario Dones does on the track too. His flow matches the beat really nicely and he has some lines like “’cause rappers know a dime a dozen ’til you know somebody” which tells me he’s studied the game a little bit and maybe even been burnt by it.
