While most trap bangers tend to put heavy emphasis on the middle and low ends (and I’m never against that), rarely do we find good records that take advantage of the full EQ spectrum. I’ve been following SCRVP’s music for a little while, and his latest project with LA based remixer Maliboux is one of his most complete records on a sonic level. It’s short and sweet, but that second drop tho…I was not ready for it. The overall EQ balance, clever chopping/modifying of the gangsta sample, and masterful use of sound panning/isolation makes listening to Ascend an experience. I wasn’t even that mad that there wasn’t more bass, but it’s something that I’ll be playing for some time.
