Wes Fif - Through The Roof

Tags: Wes Fif , Club
Get Money Gudelines

If you think about it, techno and rap are the perfect bedmates; both are percussion-based, rely heavily on synthesizers, and make clubs bump all over the world.  Thus, in the last few years, beatmakers have begun to embrace the notion that combining the two genres can potentially yield a new hybrid of club-ready music, which only now is beginning to emerge from the waters of uncharted dopeness.  Wes Fif, a 22-year-old emcee from Orlando, and Jaywan, an open-minded producer from outside Chicago, have done exactly that in their new track, Through The Roof.  Driven by a flanged dance organ and Wes Fif’s Deep-South flow, the track manages to capture a techno-like energy without compromising its hip-hop feel.  Fif’s debut album, Get Money Guidelines, is expected to drop in late ’08 and will likely feature much of the same genre-bending.
