Droop-E is a relentlessly inventive Bay Area rapper and producer, and he’s also the son of rap legend E-40. Nite Jewel is a hazy gloom-pop singer-songwriter from Los Angeles. They aren’t the most obvious pairing, but they make really cool music together. Together, they’ve formed a duo called AMTHST, combining sleek, dark pop with raucous Bay rap. Their Euphoria EP is coming out next week, and we posted the early track “Thug Passion.” Below, listen to the swirling, beguiling “Let It Go.”
Euphoria is out 2/17 on E-40’s Sik Wid It Records.
