Kaboom Atomic – Easy To Us ft. Def3 & Panda Steve (Prod. The Dirty Sample) [Audio]

Vancouver, BC – A few weeks ago we hit you with the news of a dope collaboration release titled NewClear from Vancouver MC Kaboom Atomic and Calgary producer The Dirty Sample (who you may also know by his rapper alias: Apeface).

Along with the project drop, these dudes released a single off the project titled “Easy To Us” (featuring Def3 and Panda Steve). It’s been almost a month since the launch of NewClear. So if you’re still sleeping on it, you’d best give this joint a listen. It’s a gem. I can’t believe I’ve been sleeping on it this month. It embodies the very “post apocalyptic raw” lo-fi sound that the homies were aiming for on the project.

The guys hit us with The Dirty Sample’s signature dirty samples; and then it explodes into this chilled-out funky beat. Kaboom and Def3 deliver the bars, and Panda Steve hits us with the hook: “For some it come and go/ Like tides that ebb and flow/ A situation we’ll never know/ Cause it comes so easy to us.”

That’s deep; deep like the tides that ebb and flow. I could be wrong, but here’s how I’m interpreting this all: this joint serves as a rose-tinted reminder that you’re not the helpless defective person that you might think you are. The things that come easy to some of us are a total struggle for others. And vice versa. That’s life. Kaboom! Think that over.
