Gorgeous Children – ICE
Last year, Face Vega and Gila Monsta knocked me off my ass with their eponymous debut project. A year later, they’ve finally given fans what they wanted – eight brand new songs in the form of ICE. Comparing these two to Raider Klan doesn’t even begin to do them justice – Gila has an acute ear for minimalist, detail-rich production, like the DJ Mustard of dark, chilly beats, while Vega raps with an all-knowing smirk on records like “Costly Bottle” and “Liberace Gems”. When people talk about artists making incredible music in their bedroom, ICE is a prime example of what they mean, packed with aquatic beats and gloomy rhymes.
