RVD3 - Silly Dumb Shit

Fuzz here,

Today I am announcing the first track by my new group RVD3, which consists of rapper Top-Notch, producer Klasz Sick, and yours truly, Selekta Fuzz. You should definitely check out some of our individual work.

Anyways, this is a stereotypical trap track, with heavy 808 kicks, absurd amounts of snares, even more absurd amounts of high hats, and goofy samples that lead into even goofier drops, all with a certain level of tongue-in-cheek. However, if you really pick apart the elements of the track, you will begin to notice the various backgrounds that we have. You can hear Top-Notch's hip hop influences in the silly vocal before the drop, Klasz Sick's "I actually play the drums and am good at sequencing them" input in the drums (particularly the snare rolls), and my jungle/drum and bass influences with the breaks and that one little reese bass I threw in for funsies.

Anyway, without further ado, I present to you RVD3 - Silly Dumb Shit.

This is the beginning of what will be a long (and hopefully steady) stream of content from us. Enjoy.
