The Geek X VRV “Love Is All Around You”

With pure “boom-bap” DNA that you can trace back to the early 90’s, The Geek X VRV summon the best of DJ Premier, Pete Rock and even early-aught “underground” beatsmiths like Evidence (Dilated Peoples) and 9th Wonder (Little Brother) for the vibes on “Love Is All Around You.” Their entire new beat tape (BOTS Vol. 4) is an ode to this long romanticized style of hip-hop production – head nodding tempos, big booming kicks, and punchy snares that smack you right in the kisser. The vocal chops and well-placed samples are the cherry on top for this sundae of old school sounds.
