Elusive beatsmith, SRCMTRL makes a gracious return with a potent 5 track EP titled Greenery. The aptly titled project takes songs from DJ Concept‘s smoke-laden album, Heavy Smoke and reimagines them with a smokey ambiance. Co-signed by DJ Concept himself, SRCMTRL was given free rein to choose any song and the result is this short EP that showcases the producer’s hazy, jazz-infused production style.


With a title like Greenery, I feel it’s only right to set the tone with a self-explanatory opening like “I Smoke A Lot (Intro)”. It’s straight to the point and there is no second-guessing. The first track “Cilantro (SRCMTRL RMX)” features Sac Town’s Chuuwee and Roc C who share their respective thoughts on their favourite strain. The production by SRCMTRL has a dreamy and atmospheric feel and the punchy drums help raise the ante. here, both emcees take time to detail some interesting tales about getting lifted and the craziness that comes with said feeling. Next is “Ain’t Got Time (SRCMTRL RMX)” which features rapper Shirt on vocal duties. Once again, SRCMTRL creates a surreal and layered soundscape that transports listeners to a whole different world. Shirt comes through with his gruff flow and vivid lyricism. The way the track progresses is quite engaging too and blends excellent vocal sampling with crunchy drum breaks with a touch of world-building sound design.


The last two tracks help close the project on a high note (pun intended).“Get Off My Cloud  (SRCMTRL RMX)” recruits The Kid Daytona and veteran Queensbridge emcee Nature for an elevating piece that is made up of graphic rhyme schemes and a haunting backdrop made up of pitched down strings, moody pads and downtempo drums. The final cut “Sandwich Bag  (SRCMTRL RMX)” pairs  Termanology and Typ-Ill for a soulful and relaxing track filled with potent chronic smoke. SRCMTRL’s sparse grooves and atmospheric samples add that extra surreal aesthetic to both Termanology and Typ-Ill’s descriptive performance and the audience are given a brilliant lyrical masterclass on the use of sandwich bags and then some.


Ultimately, Greenery is dedicated to enthusiasts of the powerful green herb,  and an open invitation for everyone around the globe to relax, twist one, and spark your lighter. Greenery is available now through all major digital retailers and streaming platforms via Crisis Center Collective.
