You may remember a few weeks ago we posted a couple tracks and an interview by 2 Dash Tone. Well now the man’s back with a full length EP to treat your ears with. It’s a released inspired by Dash’s favourite producer and hip-hop group, J. Dilla and The Roots. Those are some big boots to fill, and he could have quite easily have come off as a biter, or at least in over his head. Yet 2 Dash Tone makes it his own, and once again comes through with killer flow and well versed content that he’s demonstrated on earlier releases. Even though the EP is only 6 songs longs, with an extended interlude if the release was dead on the ground it have easily dragged on. This isn’t the case at all, and I found myself thinking ‘shiiiit where’s the rest’. The trick is to always leave you wanting more and not to out stay your welcome, and Dash manages to pull this off really well.
The instrumentation and production is of course as good as you’d expect, since this is a cover joint of sorts, filled with Dillah and Roots beats. I like the overall vibe of the EP, it’s smart, catchy and a generally positive release. If you fancy having a cheeky listen and getting the EP for the grand total of nada coins then hop over to the man’s bandcamp and check out for yourself what all the fuss is about.
