Buff1 - When the Winter Comes

Posted 6 years ago
Producer:
Damu the Fudgemunk
Album:
It's a 1derful Life

The autumn leaves are pretty and all, but When the Winter Comes, you’d better be prepared – especially if you, like me, live in the coldest state in the mainland U.S. (I reside in Minnesota, for the record). On the latest single off Booth newcomer Buff1‘s forthcoming It’s a 1derful Life mixtape, the Ann Arbor, Michigan up-and-comer uses the impending chill as a metaphor for the passage of time, spitting, “The colder it gets, the older you feel/ your bones get tense like you’re over the hill….” Damu the Fudgemunk, the inexplicably-named beatsmith readers may remember from The Black Sunn‘s Who I Am, turns in an impressive performance behind the boards, backing Buff’s half poetic, half boastful bars with a sampled beat featuring some shiver-inducing piano trills – I’m feeling kind of chilly just listening. Readers digging WtWC can find plenty more wintry jams – and, hopefully, a few warmer tunes – on Buff1’s latest street album, set to hit the ‘net December 2.
