The homie Curbside Jones is becoming a sonic jetsetter right before our eyes. It was just this July that he dropped Gyakusou Vol. 1, a collaboration with Japanese producer Ballhead, and here we are three months later looking at a collaboration similar in spirit. Floating In Between, a collaborative effort with Japanese producer Dhrma, finds Curbside Jones covering a surprisingly vast array of sounds and feelings within the span of three tracks. When you go to check this one out (which you most definitely should), don’t forget to check out the insight Curbside Jones provided into each track, and while you’re there, cop it if you can, and share it regardless so others can enjoy it.
The list of my hip-hop/rap peers that I respect is a vast one, but the club of my hip-hop/rap peers that truly inspire me is a very exclusive one. One of the longest standing members of this club is the Austin-based legend Curbside Jones. Since the day I discovered Wolves’ Clothing, every single bit of creative output from Curbside Jones has been amazing, be it music, videos, animations, clothing, photography or whatever he chooses to dip his toes into. Gyakusou Vol. 1, the brief but powerful collaboration with Japanese producer Ballhead, is further proof of Curbside Jones‘ ability to make nothing less that concept albums. Check the Bandcamp page for a complete breakdown on the origins and inspiration for the project, and cop it while you’re there, because it’s a bonafide banger.
