SLAMTYPE and Small Boss are LOCKED & LOADED on New EP
NEW YORK, NY - Earning himself a #1 song on the Itunes chart, inking a multi-project deal with Sony Orchard label, Black Tie Records, producer Slamtype has had quite the year. In 2020, that’s saying something. He had no idea when he sampled the Portuguese national broadcast system for his viral-hit “Quarentena” that it would go on to be a #1 song on the country's Itunes chart. In fact, at the exact moment “Quarentena” was coming to a boil, Slamtype was working on something else entirely. A quick Instagram exchange with his friend Small Boss in NYC, just 3 days before the song’s explosion, led the pair to begin working on the LOCKED & LOADED EP.
The focus track of the project, GUCCI, is an anthem of success and luxury expressing the joy, years of hard work can eventually bring us. The infectious beat and chorus grab you from the moment the beat drops. With a quick nod to the O’Jays ‘For The Love of Money’ the track explodes with a high energy that combines the sounds of Trap and Electro.
“We Made It Son!” Small Boss raps with confidence on the intro of GUCCI. “ Making this record was all about having fun and enjoying ourselves. Especially with everything going on around us, I personally had to cancel at least 30 shows this summer. So, we really just wanted to have fun with this.” SLAMTYPE says of the new EP, LOCKED & LOADED.
The release consists of 3 tracks totaling 6 minutes of playing time, and that’s 6-minutes of non-stop energy. The project’s party anthem ‘POPPIN’ finds both Slamtype and Small Boss in their own element. While Slamtype fuels the party with an incredible beat break, Small Boss is sounding as New York as ever, literally instructing his collaborator to take things up a notch and “Get It Poppin Son!”.
The EP was released through Sony The Orchard distributed label, Black Tie Records INC. The project marks the company's first release since signing a multi-year distribution agreement with the Orchard in June of this year. Small Boss also has an album coming out with the company on September 4th.
“We knew as soon as we heard it; This EP is special. We didn’t know how special until it all came together, but when it did, we couldn’t wait to sign a deal with Slamtype to release this project on Black Tie Records. We have a lot of new music on the way. Our distribution deal with The Orchard will help us push this record and all of our records harder and farther than ever before. I’m excited for what comes next.” Will Harris, EVP of A&R at Black Tie Records INC., said of Slamtype, the Orchard, and the new EP.
Before COVID19 and the shutdown of the entire world, Slamtype was rocking stages at sold out shows and festivals across Europe. Until life resumes to normal, he and his collaborators at Black Tie Records appear very committed to keeping the party alive. Signing a multi-project deal indicates the LOCKED & LOADED EP is only the beginning.
Slamtype and Small Boss are celebrating their success, having fun, and like many of us, trying to make the best of our current situation. Make sure to support Slamtype by checking out his new EP, LOCKED & LOADED featuring Small Boss, Now Available for Stream and Download on All Platforms.
