In the game of life, there are two kinds of people: leaders and followers. Well I take that back. There’s a third type: a vigilante ice cube person who disobeys the law, traffic signals and take matters into his own hands. You know who I’m talking about, because there is no other. His name is Ice. And he has returned. Why has he returned? Three things: revenge. Justice. Olive Garden endless pasta.
The most patriotic record label in America–Hot Mom USA–just dropped the latest EP from Rx & Shiftee called “Ice Is Back” to celebrate his return. The title track is a menacing, punishing techno-grime-ravey-and-wavy hybrid banger. The EP also includes solo efforts from each artist. Rx’s “I’m A Beast!” launches into some Detroit ghettotech booty bouncery, and Shiftee melts the ice caps with his hard-hitting headbanger, “Killa.” And if that wasn’t enough, the don of booty bounce Chrissy Murderbot serves up a Mortal Kombat-inspired, turbocharged footwork remix of “I’m A Beast!”
Just when you thought you were safe and thought “ice” was limited to the slang term for expensive jewelry, Ice is in fact back. Stream and preview the release below and pick up a copy on Beatport.- Rx
