Balance - Hammer Time

Posted 2 years ago
Producer:
Zorro
Album:
We All In 2

If the title of Balance‘s latest feature has you humming the Rick James-inspired bassline from U Can’t Touch This, then stop! Hammer Time has absolutely nothing to do with Stanley Burrell or his 1990 hit, so it’s best to approach it with fresh ears. His first Booth feature since April 2012’s Head Snap Back, this promo cut sees the Bay Area representative celebrating his rising status and tough-talking his foes in confident, conversational verses. Masked producer Zorro provides a beat worthy of a laid-back street banger, layering airy vocal samples over a leisurely rhythm section. Like what you’re hearing? You’ll be able to find Hammer Time and much more on Balance’s We All in 2 tape, dropping digitally July 1. While you wait, why not check out the artist’s guest contribution to Greenspan‘s fall-2013 single, Day at a Time?
