Bass Family Comes Together on sfam’s Latest EP

The New Orleans-based duo known as sfam is no stranger to the power of collaboration. Jacob Hoerner and Michael Pearson, the brains behind sfam, came onto the scene recently with their debut EP on UZ’s Quality Goods Records just last year, however, they have already teamed up with huge artists. Some of sfam’s best work includes their zany remixes for the likes of ATLiens and Jameston Thieves. On their latest EP, The Fam Bam, sfam taps into the collaborative magic they know so well.

The five-track EP, which was released early via Drama Club Recordings, could easily be described as a family project. Each song is a collaborative piece with a fellow producer from the weirder, wonkier side of trap and bass music. The Fam Bam kicks off with “Out My Face,” a humorous, upbeat track with the guitar-wielding riddim master, Boogie T. The entirety of the EP is bursting with variety. “Push Gas” with Denver producer DMVU is full of lasers and well-timed distortion, while “What It Is” with fellow Southerner, BOARCROK, dives deep into the sub frequencies. The remaining tracks uphold the emphasis on family and show off the talents of two rising producers: Bawldy (a New Orleans native) and vide.

Through all the collaborations, the unique sound and high-energy production that can only belong to sfam still shines. This EP is a journey into the sounds of the wonky Southern bass scene—and the whole fam bam is along for the ride.
