Know the glitch-funk duo, Dads on Display, that I’ve posted about previously? One-half of the duo, Tony Mendez, also has an alias, Lindsay Lowend, for his instrumental hip-hop productions. Though his tracks are trap-inspired, they don’t necessarily align with the heavy southern vibe that is typical within the genre. The Lindsay Lowend sound stays true to a spectrum of emotions with both a downtempo, introspective feel, and more of a party-friendly energy. It’s our pleasure to give you the the exclusive download of the excellent unofficial EP below, and if you need further convincing, check out the streams after the jump.

After writing an introduction post for Dads On Display, I was confident that they would continue making excellent tracks, and they haven’t let me down. Their latest work, “Do You Disco,” is just another great addition to their ghetto-funk catalog that keeps up their unique vibe, and it even contains a little surprise in the latter half of the track. I’ll give you a hint as to what it is: “When I rock the crowd I rock the crowd well, and when I get the feeling I feel the feel swell, ’cause when I start to rhyme well I rhyme the rhyme well.” Whether you know what I’m talking about or not, you should definitely listen to the track after the jump.
Fresh ghetto funk and groovin’ jazz-infused beats are the specialties of Dads On Display, a duo out of Washington D.C. Drawing from a number of influences, specifically hip-hop, they bring a refreshing sound to the mid-tempo world of electronic music that makes me giddy with excitement. It had been a while since I found some excellent undiscovered talent, but Dads On Display were certainly worth the wait. √+
Must hear tracks after the jump!
