Pineapple Express – [prodxvzn] x [Jay2]

Hip-hop producer Vzn’s signature sound can best be described as atmospheric, bouncy, and hard-hitting. His talents are already evident in his numerous notable appearances behind the boards, including his work on Smino’s latest song “Tempo”. Now, VZN’s been putting his own name into the spotlight a bit more with a series of his own releases, and he teams back up with frequent collaborator Jay2 for their new track titled “Pineapple Express”.

Vzn has worked extensively with the Chicago-native artist in the past, and the two no doubt have a natural sonic chemistry whenever they link up. On “Pineapple Express”, this chemistry manifests as a bright, mesmerizing track that brings both artists’ individual strengths to the table. VZN’s unmatched ear for alien-like synths combined with vibrant and booming drums make it feel like an unconventional beat to flow over, but Jay2 proves to be more than up for the challenge as he quickly finds melodic cadences that feel tailor-made to the instrumental.
