Shlump – Hydro


From the heart of California, MalLabel is proud to bring you a fresh and fully original album from one of the leaders in Trap, Shlump.

With a constantly updated page of new tracks, eps and free give-aways, Shlump is no slouch. Few artists are as hard working and dedicated to bringing you the newly minted gold you need to keep the dance floor bumping into the wee hours and with a new remix and EP up before I could even finish this writeup, Shlump isn’t screwing around. This is definitely one of the artists we’ll be keeping an eye on and we know you’ll be doin’ the same.

His background in live music from classical training to live bands becomes apparent pretty quickly with Hydro, as so many of these elements come together over that rich 808 sound. That wide open Trap template doesn’t often get as much love as this with a rich interlacing soundscape of organic and synthetic elements that will have your speakers calling all the OGs to the floor. The grooves range from tripped out vibes and ghetto bounce to airy and epic feel good tunes all backed up by that fat Trap bass. Twisted vocals, plenty of glitches and a whole lot o’ gettin’ down await for you to crack open this healthy box of vibes and lay the hood down on the system.

Poppa Doses – Ruff Up EP


MalLabel Music is proud to bring back some grimy bay area talent with San Francisco’s own Poppa Doses.

Poppa Doses is no stranger to grime and well up on his dubby Trap game, so it should come as no surprise that the Ruff Up EP is pushing the boundaries of an emerging genre even further. Pulling some elements of what keeps UK garage coming back again and again after all these years, Poppa Doses straight up put a DONK on it. These ghetto beats got the kind of bounce that’ll get your head bobbin’ like you got hydraulics in your sneakers. The title track is some of Poppa’s trademark grime while ‘Low Speed’ messes with your head and kicks it into high gear for the finish.

Homies along for the ride include Dubstep heavyweights Truth with a creepy, nasty and dank remix of ‘Ruff Up’ and The Widdler with an ethereal ride through the dark side of a Jamaican backstreet in his remix of the same. With so much talk of gettin’ low these days, it’s high time to get these rudeboys in your crate to show ‘em how it’s done. Original beats to get those booties bouncin’ and hands in the air with a couple of ghetto bass reworks to bring the vibe. We got all of that and a bag o’ chips, so let’s get the people on the floor and make ‘em sway those hips.
