MP3: Booty Fade – “It Goes Down”

Earmilk Premieres New Track From Award-Winning Dallas DJ/Producer Duo BOOTY FADE’s Upcoming Self-Titled EP


Critical Praise for Booty Fade:

“Major players in Dallas’ party and indie rap scenes, DJ Sober and PICNICTYME, who have come together as Booty Fade have stepped into a new genre and created something different. …Picnic and Sober have been on their way to representing Dallas party music worldwide.”
Nu-Soul Mag

“[Booty Fade] are able to borrow other regions styles seamlessly, and still maintain the same high energy level, while also being able to maintain the bounce of their hip-hop origins by sampling various Dallas MCs. Their music is a high energy, creative take on different styles of dance music that maintains a rap origin.”
Two Hundred And Ten

The Song:

Hybrids of hip-hop and electronic music are everywhere, but unless you’ve been getting down in Dallas’ club scene, you haven’t heard anything like DJ/producer duo Booty Fade‘s upcoming, self-titled EP, which hits streets on March 4th. Producer PICNICTYME, a long-standing member of Erykah Badu’s coveted production crew, The Cannabinoids, and DJ Sober, responsible for strengthening Dallas’s nightlife scene both rose from their city’s hip-hop scene but their music sounds nothing like what you’d expect. With one foot rooted deeply in Dallas’ street anthems, PICNICTYME and DJ Sober expertly blend elements of house, electronic, and bass music to create a new Southern-laced hybrid of rap and dance music.

For their latest single “It Goes Down, which premieres on Earmilk, Booty Fade combines local rapper Tum Tum‘s regional syrupy hit “Caprice Musik” with a 1990 hit from Tejano artist Michael Salgado. The result features a uniquely cohesive blend of snaps, hi hats, Latin-flavored accordion stabs, and syncopated volleys of Southern “aye’s!” with Tejano gritos. Aw ready!

Booty Fade Background:

Booty Fade, the production duo who took their name from a popular haircut style, are gaining attention for their hometown of Dallas, Texas with their club music collaboration. The two halves of Booty Fade, PICNICTYME and DJ Sober, are no newcomers to the Dallas rap scene. Separately, the two have worked with A.Dd+, the Cannabinoidsthe PartyPPT, and events like the Big Bang parties. When the duo discovered that they shared an interest in making party music, Sober and Picnic formed Booty Fade as a way for them to step out of their indie rap personas and create something new. The duo take regional styles from all over to craft their dance floor tracks, which quickly grabbed the attention of their city with their first release “F#$k Like a Stripper.” Their debut EP is due out March 4th.
