Quills - Dreamcatcher

Posted 3 years ago
Producer:
Fresh Kils
Album:

Loyal Booth readers are undoubtedly familiar with Strange Music, Tech N9ne’s long running, highly-successful indie label, who has long been bringing us dope music. I suspect it won’t be long until Booth newcomer Quills too is part of that quality crew. While he has no connection to the label now, the sound and skill he showcases on new promo single and EP title track Dreamcatcher would make him a perfect addition to their roster. Producer Fresh Kils’ minimalist, ominous boardwork gets the mysterious, dark cut started off on the right foot. Quills, a Montreal native, takes an introspective approach to his bars, exhibiting a tense, boisterous flow that would likely bring a tear to Tech’s eye (hopefully it won’t smear his face paint). Dreamcatcher (the EP) is set to drop this fall, but with a Booth debut this strong, I am sure we will see Quills well before the leaves change color.
