American rapper and producer VRITRA, fka Pyramid Vritra, has announced the release of a new album called Sonar which will be out on September 4th via Bad Taste. It’s strongly influenced by the Los Angeles beat scene and was produced by Leon Sylvers IV.
Describing the project in his own words, VRITRA says, “for me this was one of the most fun to execute. Most of my self-produced music falls closer to the experimental spectrum, but I feel like I’ve never focused on a solid ‘rap’ album. This is that. I feel like fans of my music wanted that. Leon has been one of my favourite producers for a long time. With him taking control of the production it freed me to focus on flow, style, and rhythm pockets. The name Sonar is fitting as well. Makes me think of beams. What made rap interesting to me in the first place was style. This is me beaming that style and putting it on the radar”.
