PREMIERE: Ribongia – “Slave Trade”

Premiering with us today is a ridiculously rad tune from Sydney (by way of Firenze, Italy) based producer Ribongia. I don’t really know much about him or October Records, the label releasing this single to his debut EP It Began on July 11. What I do know is that this is some SHIT and I’m already bugging the PR rep to let me scope this whole thing ASAP. The beat itself is extremely rugged and fairly grimey, but there are so many other interesting elements at play as well. There’s some super dope warped vocal sample layering, some big video game-flavored synth work, and a juke/footwork flip I never saw coming (meant in the best possible way). So go ahead and peep this extremely hot nu nu and get ready for the full project unveiling later in the fall.
