What you are about to hear is a music form called Associative Music and no one does it better than NYC’s rising producer Hot Sugar.
Before we dive into Hot Sugar let us school you real quick about Associative Music. Associative Music is a form of music that causes complex emotions and physical reactions to sounds mixed with melody and rhythm. The easiest way to think of this phenomena is the classic Pavlov experiments where through conditioning a dogs mouth would water simply by ringing a bell.
Ok enough with the nerd talk.
Hot Sugar dropped the track “56k” on the eve of the release of, MiDi Murder EP, which channels those dreaded days of dial up internet. Hot Sugar managed to get fellow NYC native Heems of Das Racist to lend a verse on the track. Hopefully MiDi Murder EP will be enough to hold us over until Hot Sugar’s full length album is released later next year.
You can stream the track below. Or buy The MiDi Murder EP which just dropped today.
