Exclusive: Nitti Gritti and Gammer link for long-awaited ‘Underdogs’
Neither Nitti Gritti nor Gammer is a stranger to the Diplo-sponsored spotlight. The former, a Miami native, took to Diplo’s Mad Decent label last year to release his first-ever EP, Drive, while the British latter, a former hardcore hero, secured his debut guest spot on Diplo & Friends back in 2017.
Now, the two have brought their bass abundant faculties back to Mad Decent for a skull-splitting offspring by the name of “Underdogs.” The driving, cinematic introduction surrenders to an equal parts confounding and gratifying trap/dubstep hybrid display. Gammer’s bygone days rear their head in the track’s hardcore fills, for a finished product that is as fluid as the earth is round.
With their unfettered creative dexterity and aural finesse, “Underdogs” is certainly just an enticing title, and by no means eponymous of its creators.
