“Ball So Hard” / “Trippy 13’ (High Out Yo Mind)”

DJ Earl (#TEKLIFE practitioner and Traxman collaborator) is set to drop a new album, Audio Fixx 2, the follow-up to last year’s Audio Fixx (which was lovingly written up by TMT in-patient C Monster). Earl has already released two previews from the album: “Trippy 13’ (High Out Yo Mind),” which continues the TEKLIFE vibe with a minor-key battle feel, and “Ball So Hard,” a harder, club-ready juke joint. Both are classic Earl, but the subtle twist that happens roughly halfway through “Ball So Hard” is cold as fukk.

“Ball So Hard”:

“Trippy 13’ (High Out Yo Mind)”:

Look for Audio Fixx 2 on March 19.
