TroyBoi Proves He's an Absolute Beast on 20-Track Album 'Left Is Right'
The London producer has announced a North American tour supporting the new set.
The dankest speak-n-spell in the universe just dropped a massive 20-track album -- London-bred TroyBoi is here to reinvent tired trap traditions and mark himself a leader among producers from both hip-hop and dance.
Left is Right is out now via T Dot Music is best enjoyed with the bass turned to the max. Elements of dubstep, trap, R&B and house weave in and out of minimal headbanger beats designed to pop trunks from Los Angeles to Mars. Fans should recognize previously released anthems "O.G." and "ili," while new cuts "Back To The Wall" and "What You Know" bang with a grimy darkness. "Mantra" and "KinjaBang" blend Asian influences with hip-hop percussion for some transcontinental vibes and there's even something for the lovers on smooth jams "Wavey" and "Her," featuring Nefera and Y.a.s.
This is beat music for the heads. Of its 20 tracks, only five feature guest vocalists, the big hitter coming from hip-hop legend Ice Cube on second-to-last track "Look At Me." Truly, TroyBoi's space-age flavor is the star of the show.
"Left is Right represents taking the alternate route in multiple aspects: creating your own lane, but still achieving the end goal no matter the risks," TroyBoi said in a statement. "My music is quite hard to place into one genre and is considered 'left' of center, but in my mind it works and feels 'right.'"
TroyBoi will hit the road to support Left is Right on a full North American tour, kicking off Sept. 5 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He's taking gnarly bass pals Louis Futon, YehMe2 and Slumberjack with him.
