Drew Dave is a burgeoning producer from the DMV area, who just released his new album SynthBASED through Mello Music Group. He enlists label-mate and Low-budget rapper Kenn Starr on one of the few vocal tracks, titled “TechnoGroove”. Their collaboration is a really smooth, uptempo, boom-bap cut.
Drew Dave album is mostly an instrumental album featuring jazzy piano loops, afrobeat percussion, breakbeat exoticism and plenty of bounce that will make any sound system knock. Drew Dave’s delicate balance of vintage and modern techniques, implementing live instrumentation over boom-bap drums, is just another chapter to a greater story of the rise of talent coming from the DC-Maryland-Virginia area. Drew Dave’s album SynthBASED is available on iTunes now.
