The music industry as a whole, and even the hip hop genre itself, is so rapidly progressing that it is difficult to be aware of every single project that drops. Luckily though, having connections to enterprising DJ's and influencers in the industry has certainly expanded our scope.
Today, we highlight one of those individuals with a curated VibeRotation by Chris Gellein, also known as Yung Squire, a Seattle-based DJ. His foray into production first started when he was thirteen years old while dabbling with the drums. During his junior year of high school, his hobby became a bit more serious as the Abelton computer program expanded the enterprising DJ's capabilities. Having drawn inspiration from Waka Flocka and Lex Luger, Yung Squire's production is noticeably trap; however, don't be surprised by the implementation of EDM nuances. You can check out some of Yung Squire's vibes now on his SoundCloud, and be sure to keep up with his Instagram and Twitter for his latest developments.
For VibeRotation 13, the theme is largely hip hop. Squire has included several new tracks such as A$AP Rocky's "Indie," "Six Degrees," the BADBADNOTGOOD and Ghostface Killah collaboration, and of course "All Your Fault" by Big Sean featuring Kanye West. The foreign track by Kaaris, "Comme Guccie Mane," is a welcomed surprise with the French verses sounding particularly hard against the trap beat. Listeners are offered a nice change of pace towards the end of the playlist with Southern Hospitality's chilled out iteration of "Party Girls."
