Kolossus Records affiliate RillaForce‘s “Swank” is a laid back hip-hop beat inspired by the likes of J. Dilla and Nujabes. Piano keys drive the melody, while snaps, synths, and a distorted vocal give the sound a deeper dimension. The chopped up vocal lends a modern sensibility to this otherwise retro beat. Boston-based RillaForce’s music finds its ground between hip-hop and bass music, with beautiful melodies adding new layers of interest to each production.
