From Audible Treats:
Free EP: Drums & Ammo - Vol. 1: Extra Clip
Following Instrumental LP, D&A Drops EP Featuring NorCal's Best Up-And-Coming Rappers
In April, West Coast production collective Drums & Ammo released a free instrumental album, Vol. 1. The album saw D&A stepping from behind the scenes, putting names and faces behind all of the production work they've done, a collection of tracks old and new that have earned them the ear of artists including Raphael Saadiq to Keak Da Sneak, Del The Funky Homosapien to DaVinci, Moe Green, Messy Marv, Bambu, DaVinci, and more.
And now, the foursome comprised of 6Fingers, Al Jieh, Ammbush, and REL are releasing Vol. 1: Extra Clip, their new EP and a follow-up to their recent instrumental album. While the album found the producers stepping into the foreground, this new EP places them back in a collaborative mode, working again with a variety of up-and-coming talent from around the California, and particularly Northern California, something important to the producers. "There's a lot of talent up here in the Bay Area and throughout the NorCal area that goes overlooked," explains Al Jieh. "With this EP, and a lot of the work we do in general, we wanted to help shine the light on some of that talent."
For those already familiar with Drums & Ammo's extensive production credits, Vol. 1: Extra Clip offers a dose of familiarity with tracks like DaVinci's "Blame Game" and Bambu's "We Mobb In That...," and others, while also offering up never-before-heard songs, like "Now," produced by 6Fingers and featuring Vallejo rapper TopKat, or "Addicted," a soulful track produced by Al Jieh that features DaVinci and soul crooner Rae Rosero. "For listeners that are still getting familiar with our sound, Extra Clip is a good example of the diversity we bring to the table," says REL, who will be releasing his own instrumental album this summer. "It's West Coast music, but the sound is global."
