T-R-O-Y-B-O-I. If you’re not familiar with ya boi Troy’s DJ tag, rest assured, you shortly will be. TroyBoi, the self proclaimed ”music manipulation specialist, drum molester and drop addict” is a trap producer out of London who has been super active this past year, dropping some particularly creative, weird & wonderful beats.
To start you off, a couple of his flagship instrumentals; Automatic, the perfect bump & grind jam for a droid disco & Souls, which features an eerie, hypnotic sample from The Fugees’ track Ready Or Not;
Now, peep the visual for the radio-friendly No Substitute, with beats by TroyBoi & some rare word action from Y.A.S;
TroyBoi’s been busy beatmaking with some equally fresh producers, including the track Drive, a chill trappy joint effort with Evil Needle & Soundclash, a collab with Fool’s Gold label buddies Flosstradamus, which starts off heavy on the Floss until the signature TroyBoi sound kicks in;
Naturally, TroyBoi’s a maestro at manipulation. Last month he remixed Father’s iLoveMakonnen & Key! assisted Look At Wrist (wrist, wrist, wrist, wrist) with satisfying, Sonos-worthy results;
& this week he dropped a new beat to burn the bedroom D-floor to, entitled Fireman;
Boi oh Troy!
