WZRD (Kid Cudi x Dot Da Genius) - Brake

DJBooth_logo2x
  • Artist: Kid Cudi
  • Track: Brake
  • Producer: Dot Da Genius
  • Album: Untitled (TBD)

Since Perfect Is the Word hit our homepage back in June, Kid CuDi and Dot Da Genius have been quiet regarding their forthcoming “experimental rock” side-project, WZRD. No need to worry, thought - now that the twosome have taken their collective foot (Yeah, I have no idea what that would look like, either) off the Brake with the release of the lead single, it's full-speed-ahead to the project's arrival, with (we can only hope) no pit stops. Like its predecessor, this jam finds Dot blending trippy rock instrumentation (dig the sludgy guitar sound!) with plodding percussion as CuDi intones cryptically introspective lyrics. This time around, however, the mood is a tad more upbeat, with the Baltimore representative emphasizing his determination to soldier on despite whatever obstacles fate may throw in his path. (Side note: am I hearing things, or has CuDi's singing voice gotten stronger since last we heard him?). If this cut leaves you craving more be WZRD's patented stoner-pop-hip-hop-rock amalgam, you can keep it locked to the Booth for further tunes leading up to the release of their untitled debut set in early January.
