Deal - The Villain Returns With 'Beards x Beats x Kicks' EP

Over the years, artists that have been featured on this site have come and gone. And while I fuck with a fair number of them, jokers like Deal - The Villain always stand out as my favorites. Dude's whole steeze when it comes to putting pens to paper, fingers to pads, is right up my alley, and I'm amazed that he can just slide right back into the pocket like it's nothing, unleashing his Beards x Beats x Kicks EP earlier today.

Sadly, I fucked around and didn't recognize the beauty of the EP's lead-off track, "Legend Blue," when Deal dropped the video earlier this month.

Yeah, this will already be one of my favs of 2017, trust. Deal produced that track, along with a couple of others on the project, alongside S1ncere (who you should remember from his debut project, EPic), although DTV also found inspiration from the material of Knxwledge and Flying Lotus. DTV did hit me on the jack to let me know that he's going to be producing the forthcoming Beards x Beats x Kicks ALBUM from top to bottom, making this a proper "extended prelude."

To keep it a buck, I've been waiting for "Emerald Preference" since December 2015, so I'm glad this is out now. It's also refreshing to see cats know how to evolve their sound without totally sounding like some other artist. Dumb refreshing, actually, and Deal says you can expect more of the full length project to sound more like "Legend Blue" and the EP's closer, "Entrada."

You can stream the entire project below via Bandcamp, where it's available for whatever you want to pay. Shouts to the EA crew and all of the real from the Garden State. JERSEY!
