BIJOU unveils newly minted G-House label, Do Not Duplicate Recordings, drops joint EP with Dr. Fresch
G-House hero Dr. Fresch teams up with BIJOU on a new collaborative EP, dubbed Gangsta Party, to celebrate the latter’s newly minted record label, Do Not Duplicate Recordings. The EP combines Dr. Fresch’s infectious basslines with BIJOU’s carefully selected hip-hop vocals for a complementary merging of styles between the two formidable producers. Both tracks fall under the G-House verity, of course, running a blend of hard hitting house rhythms, low octave synths, and infectious vocals.
“Kung Fu” is the first track on the EP, utilizing a wiring synth sound below a mystifying piano melody and chopped hip-hop vocals repeating “let me tell you how I come though with the one two kicking shit like kung fu.” The drop hits with a heavy rubber band bass below its higher octave counterpart for contrast. Alternately, the EP’s second cut, “Too Cocky” opts for a sitar melody from the jump, instantly building anticipation that eventually falls into a heavy-handed, bouncing break.
Do Not Duplicate Recordings ultimately seeks to showcases the rise of the G-House scene by these two producers. The Phoenix, Arizona-native producer’s newly established imprint comes hot off the heels of Dr. Fresch’s recently launched label venture, Prescription Records.
