Friendzone – RETAILXTAL
The Bay Area production unit Friendzone composed of James Laurence and Dylan Reznick have been on a tear with the beats recently. A hunt for some instrumentals free of rap-verse accompaniment from the duo ensued after hearing two of their beats on the recently released mixtape from Deniro Farrar and Shady Blaze KILL OR BE KILLED. Friendzone was the sound behind “All The Way” and “Back/Forth/Back”, two tracks of polar opposites with regards to sound elements but both fitting for the respective verses and cadences from Shady Blaze and Farrar. “RETAILXTAL”, which you can stream and download below, is a cut off a forthcoming instrumental project titled DX, which you have to suppose will exhibit even more versatility from the duo.
