Adrian Lau - Under Control
Grinding your way to success in the music industry can be stressful, but Adrian Lau ain’t sweating it. As he informed us on his debut DJBooth feature, it’s All a Game to him. On his latest single, released along with visuals by Antodope, the Brooklyn-based rapper and producer takes a similarly laissez-faire perspective on the hustle, assuring us he’s got everything Under Control. Though calm and collected, his bars reflect a intense investment in the craft of rhyming. Surf School label boss Harry Fraud sets an appropriately mellow, yet driving mood behind the boards, punctuating a deliberate rhythm section with hazy organ licks. Like what you’re hearing? More awaits on the artist’s Projection LP, available for free digital download as of February.
