GreyscaleSound, a Los Angeles based ambient trap producer and member of the VD$KD collective paves the way for more forward-looking urban-Latin sounds with two futuristic experimental reggaeton beats.
Before finding out about avant-garde club producers like Endgame or Dinamarca, I envisioned a fusion between the futuristic, ethereal soundscapes emotional/cloud/vapor-trap and the rhythmical flavours of dembow, baile funk, tarraxo and the like. On the global bass side of things, this happened only in dribs and drabs, yet the post-internet trap side has been sticking almost exclusively to half-tempo 808 beats all along. Until now.
‘L a t i n T o u c h’ and ‘Un $aludo’ are delicate, crystalline beats that unintendely come very close to the use of dembow in avant-garde club. Now the global bass scene is becoming ever more interested in these futuristic ambient sounds, getting the post-internet underground on board is now hopefully closing the circle!
If you dig these futuristic ambient sounds blended with dembow in the broadest sense, check out the new mixtape from the CU)LO collective from Valencia!
