Listen to Ribongia's new tropical hip-hop banger My Word

Listen to Ribongia's new tropical hip-hop banger My Word

The single is his second to drop from his upcoming Escapisms EP, which is shaping up pretty bloody nicely.

The one thing I really love about Ribongia's production work is how unique and refreshing it sounds, despite tropical-entwined electronica blowing up to massive popularity levels over the past year or two. A good example here is his single Journeys - it was released almost four months ago now, yet whenever I listen to it's percussion-driven groove it feels like something fresh and new, as if it only dropped the other day. Lucky for us, Ribongia actually did drop a single recently (by that I mean this morning) and believe me, it's just as forward-thinking and welcoming as Journeys. The track is called My Word and features Melbourne-based hip-hop artist Hancoq, who's up-beat rhymes accompanies Ribongia's production perfectly. My Word sports a real bizarre beat, layering pan flute with percussion claps and whistles to create something that sounds very tribal yet at the same time, captures Ribongia's well-loved tropical sounds. To be honest, it's really quite difficult to describe what Ribongia has plated up here, not because it's bad, but because it's so unique and eccentric in comparison to the hours and hours of Australian electronica that drops everyday, so I think I'm just gonna let the music do the rest of the talking here. Listen to the single below.
