Adrian Lau - Under Control

Posted 2 years ago
Producer:
Harry Fraud
Album:
Projection

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.
