Premiere: Eito releases “Go Crazy,” feat. Mission To Mars

Pittsburgh rapper Eito unveils, “Go Crazy,” a track from his forthcoming sophomore EP, ‘While You Were Sleeping,’ scheduled to drop July 9.

Eito has it going on! With “Go Crazy” he blends rolling trap muscle with undulating sonic textures, all capped by an infectious flow.

Talking about the EP, Eito shares, “I really seek to create music that is anti-disposable and stands the test of time.” And then goes on to reflect on his creative process, “I sweat the details, but I know the most important thing is to communicate emotion.”

Eito grew up in less than stellar circumstances in Washington, D.C., in and out of group homes and foster homes for decades. Yet somewhere in there, he determined he wouldn’t allow context to get in his way. Immersing himself in the punk, house, and boom-bap hip-hop scenes, he developed his unique sound and soon was making an impact in rap battles in the city.

He followed by learning the intricacies of the sound studio, laying down stylish tracks rife with sonic layers characterizing his potent sound.

Explaining, Eito says, “These songs are going to be things that people are used to hearing in the US. I’m always challenging the narrative going on in the clubs and on the radio.”

Prior to While You Were Sleeping, Eito released his music on LXXXIV, an indie label. Now, though, he’s going the indie route, delivering cool production and smart lyricism with the goal of influencing the mood and feel of contemporary hip-hop.

“Go Crazy” opens on strident synth colors, bright and gleaming, oscillating with shimmering hues, followed by the entry of a hefty, thumping trap rhythm, giving the tune beaucoup low-slung, fat punch.

The rapping flow is tight and right, shifting from more melodic delivery to tasty machine-gun flows on ratta-tat-tat syllables fused with inventive rhymes, as the slow, low, and banging harmonics pervade the song’s structure with muscular flavors.
