Yesterday, when Chi-town mainstay Naledge dropped off Cruisin, our very own DJ Z remarked that the record’s mellow pace made it the perfect soundtrack for lead-footed motorists looking to avoid another point on their driving record. You might expect to find Emilio Rojas’ Ride Around Slow on the same playlist as that laid-back jam, but you’d be wrong. Contrary to what the title may suggest, the new promo single is more likely to encourage reckless behavior than prevent it. Fresh off lending his innovative production stylings to Skyzoo’ s Give It Up, !llmind continues his creative hot streak here, creating a jagged, heavily-syncopated synth-percussion groove to back the freestyle series alumnus as he paints a seamy, smoky lyrical picture of the good life. This joint isn’t attached to any forthcoming project, but fans can catch Rojas playing DJBooth’s A3C stage on October 13!
