You can never know what to expect from the badman Stray, even though the Since You've Been Gone mixtape and the Ivy Lab 20/20 vibed stuff on Critical kinda hinted at what could happen. Then this EP dropped and I was shocked, then amazed, and then completely consumed by these fat beats. Special props to the one traditional DNB tune on here though: Queen sounds like Stray's take on dBridge's soulful stuff. AMAZING EP that you have to buy now. Don't sleep, there is no weak tune here!
Favorite track: Queen.
Grinding hip-hop meets percolating drum & bass on this excellent EP which finds Stray exploring deeper, more visceral territory than on his previous two outings for Exit. Highlights abound but "Walk On By"'s monstrous, tree-felling bassline steals the show in this particular household.
Favorite track: Walk On By.
