Released: Available now digitally
Producer Grant Peyton has released a self-titled full length late last month and a two-track download a few weeks ago and they are both chilled out, backpack rap instrumental pieces of work. Coming from Orlando, FL he has been influenced by south Florida garage rock and beach friendly hip-hop. The Grant album is a mixture of traditional hip-hop tracks that any emcee would want to get on, while he throws in his tripped out synthesized heavy bass tracks. One banger that stands out is the one featuring Michael Suess. This track reminds me of a dark place you don’t want to go to. It displays some influences of Andre Nickatina. The two-track download Purp in da Drank is a collaboration with artist XXYYXX who is familiar to the ISM family. They broke down Waka Flocka “Hard In Da Paint”. Grant’s remix had the chopped and screwed skills that come from the south and are frequently played through out Florida. He uses keys that drape over the lyrics making the song have a soft side while still having hard-bitten characteristics. He is working on a full length album to be released this summer, so keep an eye out. For now check his bandcamp and enjoy.
