New York artist Lonny Love has shared a vibrant new sample drill album called HOECHELLA. Showcasing elegant, charismatic production from Cash Cobain and sharp, infectious vocals, the project demonstrates some of the best that the rising genre has to offer.
Opener “No BIZZY” makes for an engaging introduction to the project, with layered production centred around cloudy strings, graceful keys, and crisp, driving percussion. Here, he delivers a series of raw, flexible verses that find him weaving dynamic flows together in a manner that’s simply entertaining. Album highlights like “PILLOW” and “How I Feel” incorporate stylish, shimmering vocal samples in a refreshing manner, with Love putting a unique twist on classic sample drill sounds. Other tracks like “Who U Fucked?” demonstrate his diversity, with a forward-thinking instrumental that is eclectic and idiosyncratic. “BOOKA” and “DEAL WIT” find him on a more melodic tip, delivering a series of catchy melodies atop memorable, ear-worm production. A versatile and addictive set of 14 tracks, HOECHELLA finds him at the top of his game vocally, tackling the luscious production with effortless confidence.
The latest from New York’s Lonny Love, HOECHELLA is bright, spacey, and powerful, showcasing some of the best of the rising sample drill genre.
