Another sneak peak at Lockah‘s upcoming album Yahoo Or The Highway on Donky Pitch due April 14 and again, it’s fantastic.  As I mentioned the last time I spoke on Lockah, I’ve never been overly impressed.  Maybe I just didn’t listen right (you heard me; we all do it sometimes).  Fact of the matter is this album is shaping up to be a supremely futuristic take on ’80s synth music that hits me with all the right feels.  The space he allows sounds to breathe and ride here on “Heartless Monster”, while there’s a number of complex things going on is really impressive to me.  Just listen to the bassline alone on the tune once everything gets going.  Bouncy, melodic and detailed… just like everything on the entire track really.  And that marching band percussion on the outro?  I’m officially giddy for the album drop next month.
