How cool would it be to make music with one of your very best friends? OK, but what about an EP? BIJOU and Dr. Fresch have done it again! Only this time, they’ve combined forces on a new collaborative album, the ‘Gangsta Party EP.’ It represents their dynamic friendship and individual sounds wrapped together in one nice little package. This duo has been making music side-by-side for a few years now but I gotta say, this EP is definitely more spicy than their other creations. I, for one, have been bumping the EP more than ten times since its release last week. This EP was released under the record label, Do Not Duplicate Records, now the record label of the man of G- House himself, BIJOU. Talk about the ultimate best friend goals, because Dr. Fresch just dropped HIS own record label The Prescription Records recently as well! I can tell that the two of them really complement and help each other grow. It’s really exciting to see them evolve as artists, both individually, as well as together. The Gangsta Party EP has two tracks: Kung Fu and Cocky. Both songs have strong hip-hop influences with catchy rhymes to emphasize the type of vibe—a gangsta party.
“KUNG FU” -DR. FRESCH, BIJOU
This track’s bounce is dark. It definitely packs some heat right off the bat. The rhymed verses are catchy. In the middle of the song, the rhymes get a little unapologetically vulgar. The song has BIJOU’s party-music vibe too, perfect for a song named this. Overall, I dig the song. It makes me want to throw some kung fu moves on the dance floor. (Think they’ll tell me how to come through with the one-two, kicking shit like kung fu? Stay tuned.)
“TOO COCKY” – DR. FRESCH, BIJOU
I feel like when they made this song they were hyping each other up super hard. The beat bounces around on this track, much like the other one does in the EP, but I find this track’s beat to be a little more buzzy and playful. The song has a simple, yet effective message that’s made clear by the title and the rhymed verses alike. Think they feel a little cocky? There’s a sitar-like sound in the background throughout the song that builds up to the drops and add layers to the whole piece. I’m about it. It does not disappoint. I’m visualizing this banger in a lot of mixes coming soon.
