Whether or not you’re fortunate enough to live a luxurious life, or you’re on the grind trying to attain that level of status, producer AntMan Wonder‘s new single, Sleeping Giant 2, can be enjoyed by anyone who appreciates the aesthetics of lush composition. The first featured cut from Wonder’s upcoming album, Sleeping Giant 2 employs a rich opening that unfolds into sprawling horns, layers of drums, synths and a pulsing bassline. Brooklyn emcee and Booth regular Skyzoo makes an appearance, adding to the grandeur, while vocals from Dayna Watkins soften the brazen sound momentarily. The end result is like listening to a hip-hop orchestra play theme music for a rap superhero flick. This is AntMan Wonder’s first DJBooth feature as an artist, but you can check out previous DJBooth cuts that he’s produced, and check back for the release date of Century Gun, hopefully coming soon.
