The Chicago Rapper and Electronic-Soul Producer Flip a Funky Remix, Premiered By ThisSongIsSick



Critical Praise for ProbCause:

“ProbCause nimbly rides fusion-friendly hip-hop tracks; there’s the DJ Screwed-up dubstep buzzer ‘Ego Trip’ and the ecstatic rap-rock track ‘Neon Dreams.'” – SPIN

“He’s a great rapper who you can imagine killing it at open mics, cyphers and old-school styled club nights.” –  PotholesInMyBlog

“You’ll find WAVES incorporates several different genres within it’s overall hip-hop vibe– electronic, rock, and blues are some of the other elements tapped…”HotNewHipHop

“The rising rapper […] has continued to dominate his own lane… Prob will have you locked in.” – XXL

“…just one conversation with ProbCause is enough to make you realize that he’s deeper than even his most serious lyrics suggest.” –

“The lanky MC’s vocal gymnastics have an elastic flow… he raps like a fan in the crowd hollering at the DJ to pump up the volume.”Chicago Reader

It’s diverse, veering from slower flows erring in the sub-genre of jazz-rap to hard-hitting, hard-spitting electro-rap. It’s a perfect summer project…”HillyDilly

“In Chicago and beyond, ProbCause is one to watch. His skills, creativity and persona are refreshing and unlike much else. There is a spin on everything that sounds and feels distinctly his. In both the rap game and the art world he is changing the rules.” –

The Remix:

ProbCause teams up with electronic producer Manic Focus to lay down his rhymes on a remix of Exmag‘s “Tilt Mode” ft. Gibbz, which premiered via ThisSongIsSick. ThisSongIsSick previously reviewed the original funky-smooth track, calling it “a blend of sexy live soulful energy with an unreal electronic twist.” Exmag has previously collaborated with ProbCause on the Chicago rapper’s WAVES EP, working in electronic-rock-inspired production. On this remix of “Tilt Mode,” ProbCause gives a fresh take on the banger and weaves his rhymes through it, complementing Gibbz’ soulful singing with his swooning raps.

ProbCause recently released an EP with Hologram Kizzie, fka Psalm One, as ZRO FOX. The project displays a range of hip-hop, trap, and wavy electro-spirited cuts, showing a musical chemistry that reaches new creative heights. “The EP offers plenty of thought-provoking rhymes and intense production for fans of alt-leaning hip-hop,” said Consequence of Sound in their premiere post. ProbCause, a prolific rapper with a sound that jumps from hip-hop, to electronic, to RnB, and then back to a classic boom-bap gritty rap, has the ability to tell stories that make audiences reminisce. With his indisputably savvy bars, percussive delivery, and versatile production skills, he’s at the head of the pack of promising new Chicago artists.
