School is out for Seattle producers Suttikeeree and WD4D, whose new release After School EP 2 swerves tightly between sticky dance floor thumpers, funky future rhythms and straight-up West Coast hip hop. Hooked through with chopped-up vocal samples and heavy bottomed bass, After School EP 2 delivers fresh and chunky beats with ease along with some fun surprises.
Sliding right into a catchy club groove, “Different Sounds” starts the party like a strong martini, stirring together submerged vocals, shifty beatwork and robotic old school funk. Lead single “Satisfaction ft. Introcut” is a bright yellow dance tune that splashes down on the sidewalk like sunshine, thick and creamy with a hard vintage vibe.
Gangsters lean back on “Ride-By Music,” a spaced-out, screwed-down track whose lone bass drum rolls slow, heading out for a night that is bound to get messy. Gritty thunker “Quest for Fire” goes even lower, combining a childlike melody and slick cosmic synths with psychotic vocals for an unsettlingly soothing experience. Pulling it all together into the smoothest sound yet, “Dismissed” grabs the listener with urgent beats, knocking itself sideways into a lively gypsy jive where breaking genres is just another extracurricular activity.
