Just a mere two months ago, up-and-coming twerk enthusiasts Bad Royale released not only their second EP as a quartet ever but also their first official EP with Buygore in Welcome to the Badlands. With insane features such as Ragga Twins, Richie Loop among others, adding a spicy touch to every track, they are at it again, bringing back those dancehall-moombah-twerk-bass vibes (or better known as what they dubbed ‘Kingstep’) in their Quest of the Magi EP, out now for purchase.
Without a second to waste, you’re met by Clinton Sky, hyping up the EP as you nose dive into a 808-laden drop, as Sky’s vocals carry you through heavy kicks and quick snares in “Bounce With Me”. Your then lead into “Real Ruff Stuff”, filled with energetic snares and dynamic synths, this paired with the infamous Ragga Twins, makes for a lethal dose of energy not for the faint hearted. There is no slowing down, as Bad Royale gives their own rendition of the classic New Orleans bounce style in “$hakebox”, featuring Fly Boi Keno, as they take a turn for the ‘twerk’ and leave no body unmoving. Bringing reggae-dancehall and even moombahton vibes to light, General Jah Mikey takes the stage in “De Policeman” with high intensity, alongside Bad Royale who shows no mercy in their production. Wrapping up this already relentless EP is “Feeling It”, a mantra for all those heavier bass lovers out there – the passion from Goldie Gold perfectly coin with the explosive drop, truly showcasing Bad Royale’s talent in sound design as well as production as a whole.
It’s only been a year and it’s obvious Bad Royale isn’t slowing down anytime soon. Scope them out as they have a handful of new music set to release by the end of the year and as they embark on their first tour alongside Borgore and Styles&Complete.
