This fresh instrumental beat from Berkeley’s Dan Casey (a.k.a. Yalls) has been making the rounds since he posted it to his SoundCloud on Monday night, and rightly so. I had the pleasure of being introduced to this track in the flesh during his headline performance at Milk Bar SF on Saturday night, which was one of the best I’ve seen from the local legend.
Everyone was vibin’ hard to the build up, but it wasn’t until the orgasmic drop at the two-minute mark that asses really hit the floor. Originally intended as a wild hip-hop beat, this banger definitely stands on its own. Stacked with high-pitched samples and future-funk hooks, “Grand Entrance” is not be fucked with. In fact, Dan will probably kick you out of the club if you try rapping in his face. You can ride the vibe, just don’t kill it.
And as if one bangin’ beat wasn’t enough, Yalls dropped another one late last night. Enjoy.
