For the past two years, Blunts and Blondes has been establishing his name as a well-known free-form bass and trap producer. Making appearances at events like Excision’s Lost Lands, EDC Orlando, and Bass Canyon, going on tour with dubstep legend Subtronics, and reaching almost 500,000 streams on his remix of “Lift You Up” by Zeds Dead, Blunts and Blondes is making serious moves and it’s only just the beginning. He’s been releasing singles since 2017 and when it was announced that an EP was in the works, weird bass fans everywhere couldn’t wait to hear what he was cooking up. Blunts and Blondes recently dropped his debut EP Smoking with Friends on Deadbeats and it’s even more dope than imagined.
“Rain Dance” leads Smoking with Friends and it’s the perfect introduction to the rest of the EP. The reggae melody and trap drums match Blunts and Blonde’s signature sound and as soon as the bass comes in you’ll understand why he’s a production genius. The next song on the EP, “Run the City,” is easily one of my favorites and the badass bassline and clean vocals make for one of Blunts and Blonde’s best tracks yet. If you like your bass chill and laid back, be sure to check out “Smoke Break.” While the song is definitely more easy-going, the free-form bass adds an edge that allows the song to fit nicely with the rest of Smoking with Friends. The final song on the EP, “Take a Hit” is one of the harder songs on Smoking with Friends and has a slight dubstep sound. The sound design in this song is remarkable and Blunts and Blondes’ usual wobble is combined with a riddim bass that, when paired with trap percussion, gives a very groovy, yet heavy, vibe.
If you like your bass weird, you’re not gonna want to miss Blunts and Blondes taking place at Goldrush 2019 on September 27th and 28th at Rawhide Western Town in Chandler, Arizona. You can purchase your tickets here.
