With a tireless hustle and resonant roar, DUSTY LOCANE doesn’t take time off. Reconnecting with rapper-producer Kajun Waters, the 95MM Crew collaborators share -95 DEGREES, their new EP.
The 7-track effort, which includes a remix of the recent video single, “CHEVELLE,” meshes DUSTY’s gravelly basso voice with Kajun’s striking tenor melodies like thunder and lightning.
Bolstered by Kajun’s vibrant drill production, a staple of DUSTY’s loaded discography in recent months, “-95 DEGREES” benefits from the natural chemistry the artists share. On “SEARCHING,” the duo lurks over sliding 808s and a warbling instrumental melody, ready to strike their target at any moment. Cuts like “FAITH IN ME (NINI),” anchored by the vibrant flair of Latin guitar melodies, show the collaborators’ versatility, trading their bossed up tough talk for seductive pleas.
“-95 DEGREES” arrives hot on the heels of December’s CATCH DA FLU, a ferocious EP, home to soul-baring tracks like “TRIALS & TRIBULATIONS” and “MY WAY,” and NIGHTMARE ON DA FIFTH, a sinister project that dropped on Halloween. The tape continues to cement the Canarsie native’s chokehold on the Brooklyn drill scene, while also taking the time to showcase the talents of DUSTY’s 95MM crew, including 3Kizzy, Kajun Waters, SFIV5, Stelly Hundo, and OMB Jay Dee.
Though he’s stepping away from the game for a while, DUSTY doesn’t see his situation as a setback–he’ll be back soon enough, focused and stronger than ever, as he continues his mission to elevate to A-List status.
“WHAT DON’T KILL ME MAKES ME 95 TIMES STRONGER,” said DUSTY on Instagram. “TO ALL MY REAL SUPPORTERS AND FANS ITS MORE ON DA WAY VERY SOON.”
