Way back in December of 2010, KVBeats introduced himself to The DJBooth with Maria, a reader-acclaimed cut featuring the guest rhymes of Bronx mainstay Chaundon. Three years and change later, the Dutch producer is back on our pages with You Know the Rules, an EP lead single which displays his undiminished passion for that classic boom-bap sound. The headliner’s mellow, chopped keyboard loops and compulsively head-noddable percussion set the mood as Rashad (of Ill Adrenaline-signed duo Rashad & Confidence) spits about his ambivalent relationship with the music industry. Disillusioned with the business side of the game, he nonetheless remains determined to bring hip-hop back to its former glory: “I’m stuck in my own era, call it a Renaissance / The reemergence of rugged beats and clever bars.” DJ Rob Swift assists behind the wheels of steel. For Rules and much more, check out The Breadwinner when it hits record stores and online retailers Tuesday, February 18.
