Los Angeles, CA – Following their debut trap-infused New Noise single “Raxxx,” the production algorithm known as GITCHII is back with their first full length EP – the trailblazing Bussa Shot. Out now on Dim Mak, the release is a collection of four hip-hop infused scorchers that set the current scene ablaze.
In a 160 BPM blur of genre-bending ululations, the title tune uses vibrant dancehall chants as a build into the airtight trap drop. “Concrete Jungle” follows with furious percussion patterns and hypnotic backbeats, while “Put It Down” and “Raxxx” are gritty booty rap anthems that close out the EP with a satisfying pop.
GITCHII burst onto the scene in 2015, and it was no fluke. In a musical age where genres are both invented and saturated at the drop of a hat, GITCHII audaciously rises above the pack with their distinctive and boundless sound. They have successfully demonstrated their knack for reworking radio-friendly songs in innovative ways, evidenced by their bootlegs of Rihanna’s “BBHMM,” Trey Songz’ “Touchin’, Lovin’,” and Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj’s “Flawless,” the latter which surpassed a staggering 1.2 million+ plays on SoundCloud. Their official remixes have been equally phenomenal, having recently released a take of Major Lazer’s “Powerful (feat. Ellie Goulding and Tarrus Riley)” that’s garnered 156K+ plays in one month’s time. As mysterious as they are prolific, this impressive production powerhouse continues to shatter genre boundaries and reinvent the standard.
