Close your eyes and picture the cast of Hee-Haw at a massive rave – “Good People” is the soundtrack, a rollicking banjo banger. This release marks the second outing on T&A for both the Smalltown DJs and Grandtheft, following up Loving The Vibe and Gangsta Musik / Splash, respectively. Early support from Soggy Bottom Boys, the Duke Brothers, Cletus the Slack-Jawed Yokel, Barney Fife and Jeff Foxworthy.
The Good People EP comes out on January 8, 2013, with remixes from XXXChange and Nacey. XXXChange’s remix is hard as fuck, while Nacey’s is deeper and more melodic. The B-side, Stuck Here, is a tech-house floor-filler with an equally irresistible hook. The Good People tour is currently rampaging across Canada.
Smalltown DJs & Grandtheft – Good People Full EP coming January 8.
I’m super proud of this EP. A few years ago after doing strictly dance records for a while, I got back into making rap beats. As a hip-hop DJ I’ve done a lot of shows with a lot of rappers but a standout for me was GLC, from the Sunglasses is a Must tour that Cosmo Baker and I did with A-Trak. He was on Kanye’s Spaceship and Drive Slow and had some really good records with A-Trak and with Three 6 Mafia. So when I had a rap beat I felt good about, I had A-Trak put me in touch with GLC and we did “Got Me Gone,” which kind of came and went. But then GLC hit me up and said he was getting good feedback on it and wanted to do a video.
He also said “send me more beats,” so I did, and after a few more months he hit me back with four finished songs on the first four beats I sent him, from me and my friends Nacey, Lunice and Derek Allen (aka DJA). Rhek knocked out a great cover, Sammy Bananas helped me tighten up the mixing and boom, here we are! The EP came out yesterday and it’s $2.99 on iTunes / $7.96 on Beatport. The Fader called it genius, and who am I to argue?
The EP is finally here!
