Hey, Erik Hassle! After your impressive Booth debut, Pathetic, I was quickly Ready for You to return to our pages; we just had no idea it would be so soon. After a little more than week, Hassle is once again knocking down our doors with a similarly unique, but differently vibing tune. While Pathetic had a bubbly, poppy aroma, Ready For You falls much more squarely on the R&B side of the tracks. Here the Sweden native slows things down, and though it is not easy to be so soft yet powerful and versatile, he nails the performance atop the swooning, ambient production stylings of Gustaf “Grizzly” Jonsson. If Ready For You has you ready for Hassle’s RCA debut, Somebody’s Party EP, you’ll only have to wait a few weeks; the project is slated for release on March 4.

These "Meet" pieces just might be my favorite feature series; sharing music and turning people on to new dopeness is my favorite hobby. I don't think y'all realize how many BandCamp searches I do or how many hours I spend...
