After sufficiently frightening the population with their previous release American Nightmare, Planet VI (the duo previously known as Rock City) thought they’d lighten things up with a breezy new summer jam. I’m sorry, I’m just f**king with you. In fact, DJBooth world premiere Trouble is just as darkly serious as Nightmare, grabbing an instrumental from producer Anonymous filled with stuttering percussion and enough bass to make Pop That jealous. It’s a cinematic template that Planet VI members Uptown & A.I (Anything iLL) fill with vivid tales of neighborhoods where hope is less common that gunshots, a theme that the always manic Jarren Benton echoes in a powerful guest verse. So press play, mark your calendars for the August 28 release of American Nightmare the album via The DJBooth, and remember, listen to your mother when she says hanging around those kids is nothing but trouble.
