Crash Land slings out celestial hip-hop gem, ‘Time Warp’
As it just so happens, that moment has arrived. Garrix’s first signee, Crash Land, have released their second single “Time Warp,” following their self-titled debut.
In an amalgamation of sweet nostalgia and soft synths, rapper Crash Land achieves a celestial, melodic flow — one that surely takes its listener on a journey through the sonic time spectrum. “Time Warp” is a cohesive, fresh futuristic take on hip-hop, and yet, it’s one that finds its balance among infused elements of the past. It’s a number glimmering in originality, one that brings innovators like Flying Lotus to mind.
According to Crash Land, the track tells the story of an all-encompassing love and desire that knows no boundaries of time or place. As it begins, listeners are given a mere glimpse into the future, as a wave of euphoria washes over them. Subtle instrumentals are layered underneath the rappers wherein a sharp drum sequence takes its listeners forward in time.
