Stream Ras G's Brand New, Already Sold Out EP 'Other Worlds'
Los Angeles beat creator and free-thinking, freewheeling DJ Ras G dropped a slim but deadly storm of an EP earlier this week. Other Worlds is a five track release on (iN)Sect Records that draws heavily from chants and sparse percussion--handclaps and hollers play a huge role in his new work. It's an EP that wears its sampling techniques openly on its sleeves, with the loops and cuts that Ras G has made forming much of the beat structure. That means old school heads, this one's for you. Released as a 45" and limited to only 300 copies (150 of them red colored vinyl, the other 150 in classic black), Other Worlds is already completely out of stock, but rest assured, we've got a gift in store.
Working with (iN)Sect, Okayplayer is proud to bring to you a full stream of Ras G's Other Worlds, in all its swaying, booming glory. From the opening dub tones of "Cant Hide" through "Fried Plantains" and its scrambled chimes, the EP is a must-listen for loves of virtuosic beatmaking across a wide variety of genres. Ras G also figures prominently in the soon-to-be released Looking For The Perfect Beat documentary film, which you can watch a tidbit of here. G is known for his prolific output across numerous labels, so stay tuned--we'll be hearing much more from the pro producer very soon. For now, stream Other Worlds in full below.
