After catching our ear with the mellowed-up, jazz-tinged Sprout EP, Philly rapper and producer André Altrez switches up gears for his latest, No Come Down — a gripping set of trap bangers that flaunts and flexes his skill. Altrez co-produced the EP, which is currently streaming on Bandcamp, in collaboration with Scrap, Butch Dawson and Ben Thomas. The tone is highly contemporary (notes of Migos and 21 Savage make their way to the surface) but Altrez takes the set in alluring and atmospheric directions, adding a psychedelic wash to the hazy dreamscape of “Mystic Thots” as well as the unflinching dose of reality that is “Consequences.”
Listen to No Come Down below, and catch Altrez on an All Mutable bill at Everybody Hits on September 23rd with Baltimore rapper Abdu Ali (who released the intensely awesome Mongo project last year) as well as Philly’s incredible DJ Haram and DJ Delish. More information on the show can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar.
