Kenny Beats’ flirtation with EDM was a fortuitous step in his development. Many meaningful relationships were born out of this arrangement, including a musical correspondence with Boys Noize, an EDMer with noted hip-hop tendencies like himself.
On Smokepurpp’s new single “Repeat,” Kenny and Boys Noize rekindle their friendship from behind the boards. Like much of Smokepurrp’s catalog, “Repeat” relies heavily upon a basic rhythm structure, commensurate with the “Don’t Over Think Shit” motto hanging over Kenny’s recording space in Los Angeles. Purrp and Kenny are well suited in that regard.
