Rhode Island-bred full-contact producer Abraham Orellana started out making screeching, treble-filled street bangers for Dipset when their major label money started to dwindle. Slowly though, this Heatmakerz-on-a-budget beatmaker proved himself to be an MPC drum machine virtuoso, feverishly firing out shards of samples at an inhuman rate of speed. The studio rat now blurs the borders between instrumental hip-hop, transcendent EDM cheese, and glitching, trap-rap-flecked noise, with the push of a button, building drum machine jams in front of packed, slack-jawed festival crowds.
