Featured EP: Gravez – Rize.
Atlanta has long been a hub for all things trap – in any sense of the word. Musically at least though, the region’s trap scene has developed its own sound, and one that’s become, in all honesty, quite played out and formulaic. Atlanta-based Gravez’s production, on the other hand, is quite the opposite – this short Rize EP is proof.
The unofficial project, released for free in tandem with Gravez’s new drum kit on his website, puts his hard-hitting, textured and melodic style on full display. While it knocks every bit as hard as you’d expect from the classic trapped-out sound, Gravez’s intricate drums, perfect sampling and interesting melodies add a nuanced aspect to Rize, setting the EP apart from its contemporaries.
