ALBUM SPOTLIGHT: PARTY RECORDS MIXTAPE BY SAM ADAMS


by petercortle | October 1, 2010

So here’s the thing about Sam Adams: people are going to hate him. Guaranteed. Partly because of his attitude, which seems to implausibly mix frat boy swagger with a hip-hop sensibility. It’s one thing to be a rapper going hard over big dance beats—but to act like you’re hip-hop, with the chains and clothes? Come on, dude.

But hey, we gotta say, the kid produces results. Case in point, the track “Basshead” from his “Party Records” mixtape. Adams says that the mixtape pushes the envelope in terms of rapping over big dubstep and techno tracks. He may be right; I’ve never heard a rapper hit these type of beats before. And he seems to have developed a workable flow that allows him to either dial his syllables with every toomp of the drum or to scale it back and sing a hook. So props to Adams; check out this track, and download his mixtape. Party on.
