The regular visitors will recognize the name: Kid Hum. Coming out of Denver, our paths actually never crossed since I had moved out of Denver, when we came across each other. It is unfortunate, but wouldn’t have mattered after he moved out to the tropical paradise of Hawaii earlier this year. I’m been a big fan of his production after he slide me the Sunken State & Whygee EP late last year. I knew him as a radio DJ for Basmentalism crew and their weekly radio show and had no idea he was so nice behind the beats. Then he dropped the bomb with his Fossil Fuel release, which all I can say is “daaaayum”.
That’s kinda of where Kid Hum’s new project picks up, Offshore Drilling, which uses instrumentals from Fossil Fuel and has some of the nicer underground dudes in the mix. The excellent site, Rock The Dub was instrumental in setting this project up and getting some WYDU fav’s such as Pugs Atomz, Brown Bag All-Stars, and Cy Yung.
I’m only a few tracks into the project, but it’s great to hear some the dope beats being rapped over. It might get some getting used to for me, since I’m so used to these being strictly instrumentals (I’ve listened to the project A LOT), but so far, I’m going to have to give Brown Bag All-Stars the high point so far, but so far nothing disappointing.
