Premiere: Antwon – Laugh Now (Hot Sugar version)

12.11.13

This new B-side from Greedhead-affiliated Antwon finds him in a very bitter mood, hanging out "alone in a crowded room" and dwelling on old grudges. Replacing the old version's rumbling atmosphere, and matching Antwon's aggressive rap as it lunges forward from its usual sepia-tinted flow, is much cleaner – but still pretty in-your-face – production from wonder kid Hot Sugar. The low blows of bass and sprightly claps keep the whole thing hopping along with an unnervingly souped-up energy, like a boxer bouncing from foot to foot.
 
Laugh Now is coming out on Bella Union as the B-side to Antwon's incredibly fun single HelicopterStream it exclusively below.
