Cartoon Therapy has just released another subtly explosive two-track EP. Check it out here.
Another subtly explosive two-track EP release by Cartoon Therapy. Young producer Yaseen El Azzouni never fails to incorporate unpredictable elements onto his gangster tracks, this time fuelling his work with a more focused portion of Hip-hop and Rap. A sting of psychedelic melodies are layered brilliantly onto his first track Amelie, sampling Lil Wayne’s vocals while fashioning a rather gritty, piercing cross-section of Sitar throughout the entire tune. The second track is a witty, creative remix of My Salsa by D12, instrumentally multi layered to precision with complementary Salsa and tabla beats - or bongos is it? Either way, kick-ass.
It somehow feels like Cartoon Therapy’s objective was to highlight the core spirit of the original tracks, evoking the melodic essence of each prototype. With the first track Amelie directed towards a more immersed, oriental feel, while the second track conjures a more tropical, less sarcastic completion to its musical purpose, substantial resolve and criminal artistry are the penetrating end result. Thug salute!
