RIOT GEAR (song) - Jay Kasai / Charles Hamilton prod. Oh Gosh Leotus
Kasai is bringing in the new year real slick-like, with a sloopy bassline and reserved rhymes with swing. Joined by the multi-talented Charles Hamilton, this song starts simple and the layers increase as the instrumental progresses. A great example of doing more with less, the Oh Gosh Leotus produced track is a ponderous yet melodic snapshot of three stylists. There's almost like "Quiet Afternoon" from Stanley Clarke quality to this song.
