Gangrene Sound Bigger Than Life Without Losing Their Grimy Edge (Audio)

Gangrene played it especially cool in 2014. Alchemist got busy with Evidence as Step Brothers, while Oh No freaked his own brand of Funk alongside Prince Po for Animal Serum. A new year brings new moves for the California duo known for hallucinatory Hip-Hop, raw to the core.

Alc’ and The Disrupt tool up in “Play It Cool.” The “GTA V” (PC version) inclusion features Earl Sweatshirt and Future Islands’ front man Samuel T. Herring. Here, Gangrene veers into Gorillaz territory, as the crew weaves in orchestral and structured composition, with some Walking With A Panther-era LL Cool J-inspired rapping, true to the duo’s pedigree.

With Decon becoming Mass Appeal, is this consistent outfit about to blow?
