Neptunes Are Back … with BEACH CRUISER by FAM-LAY

Chad Hugo-only on this loopy production; a window into the world of the guy who takes a backseat to the perpetually horny Pharrell.

If you’re a music producer, this will give you a raging Arnold, or a wet clam. In one casual production Chad Hugo makes a mockery of the entire dubstep scene, taking all the good things about dubstep and making something entirely sexier with rapper Fam-Lay:

No word on the release date; but buy it on iTunes if it ever surfaces. sums it up nicely [wow — a journalist that isn’t shit]:

The Neptunes are nothing if not loyal. Half a decade after Fam-Lay’s very promising string of singles flopped under their Star Trak imprint, they still regularly put in studio time with the under-appreciated Norfolk rapper. And the galaxy is better off when they do. Laced by their quieter half Chad, “Beach Cruiser” recalls the glory days of Neptunes jaw droppers and mindfuckers. It’s go-go as imagined by space mutants, powered by shifting tectonic plates, dubstep wobbles and little fluttering melodies that happen all at once and yet meld together in a completely logical fashion. Fam sounds considerably more energized than he did in his Star Trak days, but no less unique, threatening bicycle drive-bys while bending his flow to the track’s will, or the track to his flow’s will. Or something. Rhythms and wills are definitely being bended and spaceships are definitely landing and you should really just press play on that Hulkshare.
