Flosstradamus has never shaken his reputation for producing bass-fueled, club-ready beats that cause utter destruction on any dancefloor. Deceptively titled, “Guava” — his newest collaboration with Rawtek titled — is far from the sweet, soft flavors the name brings to mind.
Instead, it opens on a jarring note, with staggered synth progressions opening into a violent build-up with deeply synthesized vocals before dropping into utter chaos. “Guava” is the perfect addition to a club set, and will certainly get some air time as festival season continues.
Quite awhile had passed since we last heard from Floss. The producer — formerly one of two — took an intriguing turn into hip-hop with “MVP” in April. Meanwhile, Rawtek is relatively new to the trap sphere, making their name with the help of Yellow Claw and the Barong family.
The track is out now on Ultra Records.
