Destructo serves up a heavy dose of G-funk with ‘West Coast’ EP
Gary Richards has the greatest job on the planet. By day he is the mastermind behind the astronomical success of HARD; by night he is dominating CDJs behind his Destructo moniker, pushing tech and deep sounds past their confines with his distinguished veteran style. Earlier this week, Destructo delivered the West Coast EP to add to his growing list of accomplishments.
Richards has been known to tear genre boundaries down at his massive events, pairing the likes of 2 Chainz and the A$AP Mob next to marquee dance acts like Jack Ü and Knife Party on weekend lineups. Now, however, it’s Destructo’s turn, churning out West Coast with a star-studded roster of rapper collaborators. YG, Ty Dolla $ign, and West Coast rap legend Warren G all lend their contributions to the EP, making Destructo’s six-track collection a party-primed, wobbly shot of extra funky g-house.
Playing on plucky bass lines and injecting fresh, hyping rap lyrics throughout, Destructo’s latest material is designed to rattle tents and club venues alike, delivering a grip of highly versatile grooves. The genre-crossing West Coast EP revives early 1990s rap trends that dominated when Snoop Dog, Tupac, and Dr. Dre were cementing their names as some of the genre’s greatest to ever live.
