Filthy guitar chords and coarse production soon segue into some silky R&B vocals as the track begins to gas-pump out dirty beats and gritty raps with an almost cinematic twist. Then, the hook arrives to crank out one last swerve that bumps undeniably hard.
The pair actually recorded the whole thing in the same place that Tupac used to inhabit. "We've always been huge Death Row fans, so when we got a chance to work in Tupac's old room, it was only right that we channeled that energy into one of our best songs to date," the pair told i-D before noting "It's some trap R. Kelly shit."
"Deep End" follows the release of "Say When" which dropped in June and an incredibly successful tour where THEY. joined Bryson Tiller on his European tour. It's definitely a welcome new track to bump that we will add to our ongoing spins of their debut EP Nü Religion that they dropped back at the tail end of 2015. If you remember, THEY. also jumped on a track with their labelmate ZHU and Skrillex to give us "Working For It," which later received a very impressive remix courtesy of Nomero.
Still, we've definitely been waiting for some new songs from these guys and "Deep End" is definitely a positive sign of what's to come on their next project, HYENA. See what we mean by checking it out below.
