100s is bringing West Coast rap back to the future. His new release, IVRY, is a glimpse into a melodic new chapter for the Berkeley MC, taking classic mack vibes to chic new heights. From the smoothed out “Ten Freaky Hoes” and the Rick James-worthy “Different Type Of Love” to the ice cold flows of “Inglish Outro” and “Thru My Veins,” 100s spits X-rated bedtime stories worthy of classic Too $hort, but with a modern attitude, approach, and peerless sense of style all his own.

Montreal’s current beat renaissance is a melting pot of hybrid sounds and aesthetics as diverse as the city itself. Yet for all of the exciting electronic producers this new scene has spawned, no one is as unique a personality as High Klassifed. Armed with a Louis bag full of 808s, a half-full bottle of Hennessy, and melodies as stratospheric as his high-top fade, HK makes his Fool’s Gold debut with the striking Palindroma EP, out today on exclusive early Beatport release. The four hypnotic tracks showcase High Klassified’s signature stew of post-trap drum programming and luxurious, dreamlike synth lines, demanding repeat listens of the entire release. Come aboard and float away with Canada’s finest.
