Summer is quickly approaching, and that means two things: One, you better brush up on those barbecue skills, and two, rappers are going to be campaigning hard for “summer anthem” status. Here to vie for the king of the summer crown is L.A. fast riser Dom Kennedy and his new single My Type of Party, a mellow but catchy ode to living the good life. Producer DJ Dahi crafts a trippy and hypnotic beat for Party that’s the definition of mellowed out; if this is a party it’s a relaxed one. On the mic Dom keeps things simple and hedonistic, luxuriating in life’s simple pleasures: “Your girl got a cute face / her friend got a nice body / and they just wanna have fun, this my type of party.” So how about it DJBooth Nation? Will this be the Party anthem that carries you through the sweltering summer months? Regardless, fans of feel good west coast hip-hop can look forward to the release of Kennedy’s Yellow Album, available here for streaming and download.
