Premiere: Byrell The Great – Flicka Da Wrist (Hand Performance Remix)
One of the most consistent artists in the ballroom world, New York’s Byrell The Great recently took on the still-gaining-steam summer hit “Flicka Da Wrist”, the track set to appear on London blog/radio show Beats, Banter & Bob‘s upcoming Que Pasa compilation. While not totally clear (assuming it’s left intentionally vague), the theme of the tape is different interpretations on “bob”, whatever that may mean to the contributing artists. Combining a pastiche of ballroom and Jersey club tropes, Byrell’s “Hand Performance Remix” is eminently functional in a way that few producers outside of the ballroom scene can manage, all while the form into weirder and more sonically adventurous places. Evil Streets, Pitcheno, FKA Deji and more feature on Que Pasa, which also features art work from the latter. The comp will be released on August 14 and a release party is scheduled for September 9 and will see performances from Trap Door, the Insert crew, Pitcheno and more.
