I first began listening to Hyper Crush when they were rapping primarily about video games. Their rhythms were catchy but they always seemed a little bit gimmicky. With that being said, my first listen of this song completely blew me out of the water. I guess that’s what happens when you have Diplo produce a track for you.
It’s no doubt that the America’s mainstream music industry is finally becoming accepting of the electronic music scene. We’ve seen artists like David Guetta and Crookers on the top 40 charts, and today’s big names such as Lady Gaga and Ke$ha are very electro driven themselves. Trust me when I say that whichever record labels begin incorporating modern EDM first will have a huge advantage in the coming future. It won’t take long either, rumors have it that top dubstep artist Rusko is producing Britney Spears’ next studio album. In which case, sign me up.
Ayo by Hyper Crush is a modern electro-party song. If you’re familiar with the group, you will recognize their trademark sound, but with the help of Diplo, the LA based trio brings a banger similar to releases by both the Black Eyed Peas and A-Trak.
