Shortly after dropping his latest EP I'm Aloud, the Atlanta trap producer Hayden Kramer, best known as Herobust, made a guest appearance on Diplo's BBC Radio 1Xtra show Diplo & Friends. You can stream the hour long mix which features tracks from 3LAU to Zomboy and literally everything in-between including Drake and Rihanna below.
Diplo introduces the OWSLA and Mad Decent producer's debut on the show as a rising trap star that went from "bedroom beat maker to booking nationwide shows in only a matter of months," This Song Is Sick reports. Before Herobust drops into the mix with two JAUZ cuts back-to-back, he states that listeners can expect to hear brand-spanking-new songs from Getter, Ghastly, NGHTMRE and LOUDPVCK.
This mix itself, which fuses hard-hitting trap with dubstep, serves as a great introduction to Herobust's sonic palette for listeners who might not have been following the artist since day one, but presents more than enough new material to keep his faithful fans happy. Kramer sprinkles a number of his own originals -- including a number of I'm Alone tracks like "Dirty Work," "Bottle Swervice" and "Skurt Reynolds" -- throughout the mix.
The artist further showcases his production skills in the mix by including a Getter remix of "Pump This," his collaboration with Snails, as well as his remixes of Kill the Noise's "Lose Ya Love" and Rihanna's "Bitch Better Have My Money."
While mixing in hip-hop standards like DJ Khaled's "All I Do Is Win" and the Drake/Future collaboration "Jumpman," the DJ balances everything out with some classic dubstep moments with Doctor P and a number of Snails originals.
Herobust's Diplo & Friends appearance demonstrates the unrestrained ethos the producer applied to his new EP, which is the first multi-track release he's shared since 2011's ALBumin.
As Your EDM reports, Kramer said about his I'm Aloud EP when it dropped via Mad Decent last month: "I called this record I'm Aloud because, in creating it, I had to realize that I was allowed to break the rules. I just decided to forget what everybody else was doing and find my own wave. The resulting body of work is honest, original and generally weird as hell. I'm very proud of the EP and I hope it inspires other artists to get weird in their very own ways as well. Be allowed. Be aloud."
