Three months ago, the legendary Mr Carmack dropped his Red EP, which included bangers that are still making the rounds in clubs today. Yesterday, Christmas came early for Carmack fans in the form of two brand new songs and an EP announcement, not to mention Troyboi sneakily hinting at an upcoming collab with the legend himself. Exciting, right?
Carmack simply stated, “2 weeks til white ep” via Twitter, causing monumental hype amongst the trap and bass communities. Thankfully, we have been graced with two songs to tide us over til the EP drops, in the form of, Drinks are on us w/Promnite and a bootleg of Drake & Future’s 30 on 30 freestyle, off their recent collaborative EP What A Time To Be Alive.
Both songs follow a similar ambient, low-key vibe, focusing on pitched-down acapellas, and of course, Carmack’s signature wildly syncopated percussion. The tracks highlight the diversity and complexity in the artist’s production, making us tremendously excited for the upcoming EP. Not a lot is known about the forthcoming Troyboi collab however, but we can only expect something massive, with the two prodigies bound to create something incredible.
Only a few hours before Carmack announced the EP and released the songs, touring company BBE hinted at a ‘cheeky Sydney show’ in January.
He last visited Australia in January, performing a double-headline show with Hudson Mohawke. Hudson Mohawke will be in Australia early February for his Laneway shows, is a repeat of their show earlier this year on the cards? We’ll have to wait and see.
