about

Dropping Gems is proud to present a long time project that’s finally come to fruition: Rap Class’ Greatest Hits. This journey into sample-chopping takes the practice to a place it doesn’t often go, a next-level of unyielding sideways angles and pyramidal inversions. Created on an all-hardware set-up over a period of years, Greatest Hits harkens back to a deeply personal time in Rap Class’ life, an unmediated period of innocence “when the dopest electronic music I heard was in a Dockers commercial or in a trailer for a movie,” as he puts it. While genre labels could apply to any of the tracks, the music is the product of a singular electronic voice, one that few, if any, other producers could even attempt to reproduce. Encapsulated in each track is a sense of irrepressible restlessness, change in its rawest form, and a willingness to jump forward, backward, or to either side whenever required. The work also captures a fascinating middle ground between pre-internet and post-internet sensibilities, an image of music with only one purpose: itself.
