Atlanta producer Anthony Rotella expounds on his freshly-minted Edgewoode moniker. Following up his spring release for Los Angeles’ based Deceast, Edgewoode returns with two more originals and a remix from Embassy alumni Clicks & Whistles for a decidedly Southern release.
The release’s A-Side Damn! is a peak-hour track combining biting synth and organ interplay over a shuffling drum beat, a nod to the musical landscapes of Edgewoode and Embassy’s Atlanta roots. The flip-side features Freak!, employing a sparse, expressive arrangement that creates a soulful vibe reminiscent of classic g-funk era rap buoyed by an instantly recognizable vocal. Rounding out the release is a rework of Freak! by Charlotte duo Clicks & Whistles, who ratchet the original up in their signature style.
