Kings show off their best grooves with the Endless Fog EP

I don't know much about this genre, so this won't be a full blown review. But I do want to give a shout to Kings for the Endless Fog EP. It presents a very funktacular sound, which some circles have taken to referring to as trap music. But generally, it's chock full of thick, heavy beats designed for serious grooving. It sounds like a beat you might hear from Outkast or Cities Aviv, or maybe something Sepalcure would do. It's got a bottom end like no other.

"Trap Musik 1" opens up totally chill, and features a brassy sounding synth, clashing of the drums, and a thick main melody over the top. "Galaxy Wave" opens with a shimmering main beat, then dazzles with a multitude of layers that all come in at the same time.

And the title song loads up on the buzzing bass and dynamic percussion. The only thing I don't like is the constant vocal samples in songs like "Let Go of the Pain" (it sounds like he's saying I over and over again). But the best part is that it's free. A copy is available over at the Soulection Bandcamp page if you're so inclined.
