With a lethal combo of exhilarating rap bars, fluctuant bass and lo-fi trap beats, Aussie producer Godlands strikes gold once more through single “Smoke Em Up,” featuring sad boy rap up-and-comer SAMPLEGOD.
Sitting at the forefront of Australia’s burgeoning bass music scene, the Adelaide-based musician continues to spread her bold sounds around the globe. Coming off a brief stint in Japan for Snow Machine Music and Ski Festival and recent fall dates supporting Joyryde in North America, Godlands returns stateside this month to play several stops on Steve Aoki’s Neon Future IV: The Color of Noise Tour. The new single follows the hot trail of success left by her Dim Mak debut EP, 4 U Only, and subsequent Blankecollaboration “Hellraiser.” Godlands picks this tune up right where she left off on previous hybrid trap tracks “No Stress (feat. Jelacee)” and “Lowkey (feat. Lil Traffic).”
