Childish Major & Rome Fortune’s ‘Rights for Wrongs’
Subtle, intriguing first single from the “U.O.E.N.O.” producer’s debut compilation mixtape
Which beat from producer Childish Major first grabbed your ears? It was presumably the stunning work he did on Rocko’s “U.O.E.N.O.” — a slowly molting Basinski-like loop of decaying synths — which was subsequently overwhelmed by two lunkheaded lines from Rick Ross. Or maybe it was the production he did for fellow New ATLien (and SPIN Best New Artist for April) Rome Fortune, on the mixtape Beautiful Pimp. Just to name a few from that low-key highlight of this young year: There’s “Balcony,” a rising and falling loop of squeaks, stutters, and grunts; the space-age then underwater Ennio Morricone take on “Art of Art”; and the Atari glitch riff on Art of Noise, “Small VVorld.”
Well, add another quietly avant production to that list of favorites. “Rights For Wrongs” is the first single from Childish Major’s upcoming mixtape of the same name. It brings Rome and Major back together over gulps of wordless vocals and fuzzy soul-jazz, with bounce-friendly drums snapping and clapping in what little open space is left. RIYL: OutKast’s “Elevators (Me & You)”; Heems’ “Juveniles Detained at Guantanamo Bay”; Ekkehard Ehlers’ legendary Playssingles.
Rocko feat. Future and Rick Ross, “YounEEnKnoIT” Produced by Childish Major
"Rocko serves up some new heat with his new track “You don’t even know it,” produced by Childish Major which also features Future and Rick Ross. This track is everything we would expect it to be and more, with a monster hook from Future and solid verses from Ross and Rocko. Look for this to pop up on Rocko’s ucpoming project Gift Of Gab 2.”-via www.freeonsmash.com
