Even though it's BACK TO SCHOOL SZN (or I'M ALREADY AT SCHOOL SZN if you're unlucky), there's still some summer vibes to be had. And even if you've already decided your song of the summer candidate, that doesn't mean you can't turn up to this new cut from Mestizo and Rome Fortune, which is out now via Goodies, the free release imprint from DJ Craze's massively respected Slow Roast label.
Not up on Mestizo? Don't worry, we've got you covered. Mestizo consists of Dell Harris and DJ Smiles, and their sound is a hybrid of dancehall and Afro/soca vibes mixed with hip-hop and R&B.
Enter "H.A.N.," their new collab with Atlanta's Rome Fortune. According to Mestizo, this track came together fairly quickly: "We sent this tune to Rome, [and] 30 minutes later he sent 'H.A.N.,' a verbal cannonball into a summertime hotel pool and splashin' haters in the face."
Also featured on "H.A.N." is PressPlay, a protege of Dallas Austin who has popularized the "tropical trappin'" sound, which blends bass house and trap sounds with a pop flair. "Instant summer classic" is how he describes "H.A.N.," which makes all kinds of sense.
"H.A.N." is available down below via Slow Roast's Goodies initiative. Turn all the way up to this.
