“America” is the latest track by Brisbane, Aulstralia based Producer/DJ Sam Stosuur, and easily his best song to date. Self described as a producer and musician who enjoys challenging creative norms, Stosuur has dialed back some of the experimentalism and returned to more time-honored sound in this latest track.
His cadence matches Kendricks perfectly, and occasionally his flow is almost that low-key casually lyrical style that KYLE is so known for, but a little ramped up in Tre38cho’s case.
Featuring rapper Tr38cho on the verse and last verse, and Roman MC on the second verse, the song is lyricism and rhyming at it’s absolute finest. This speaks volumes for the esteem of both artists, and for Sam Stosuur himself for getting the two perfectly harmonious MCs together on one track, and for producing a song which manages to balance many competing elements in way that is perfectly listenable and in which each added instrumental detail work in perfect concert, despite the many flourishes layered within this composition.
Sam Stosuur has created a lo-fi vibe with this beat, set to a more uptempo drum backing. With the sounds of sampled drum kicks sitting well in the mix, heavy tape saturation giving a warm fuzzy sound and feeling, and a cacophonous mix of added detail in the high range, this production should be overkill in about ten different ways, but somehow it all balances out nicely and still leaves room for the MC’s to have audible detail in their vocals. Tr38cho takes the first and last verse, and as an MC, I’m amazed he’s still flying under the radar. He sounds so identical to Kendrick Lamar at times, it’s almost uncanny. His cadence matches Kendricks perfectly, and occasionally his flow is almost that low-key casually lyrical style that KYLE is so known for, but a little ramped up in Tre38cho’s case. It’s like Kendrick on any day, or KYLE on an amphetamine binge.
