ADR - Chunky Monkey

There’s a strong sense of initial familiarity when listening to the latest single from ADR (aka Aaron David Ross from Gatekeeper). The dub-influenced “Stray Dog Strut” plays with our collective associations concerning reggae, and there’s an almost knee-jerk dismissal that can occur if you only hear the superficial tones that Ross works with here. But drop below the exterior similarities and you quickly realize that the song is layered with samples of banjos, dissonant squeals, and a whole host of other seemingly disparate samples that work surprisingly well within the established dub foundation. Hippos in Tanks is handling the release of his upcoming album Chunky Monkey, due out on April 16th. Listen to the stream of “Stray Dog Strut” below.
