‘Kitsch Genius’ (EP)

    We previously heard from Halifax, Nova Scotia-based producer Ryan Hemsworth when he dropped the A Way EP last August. He’s stayed busy since then, though, and garnered quite a bit of year-end love for his May 2011 release, No Plans. Chances are he’ll gain even more attention as 2012 slinks by, particularly if enough people grab a copy of his latest EP, Kitsch Genius.

    The pay-what-you-want project marries cloud rap atmospherics with choice vocal samples from Gucci Mane and Rick Ross, among others. The latter appears on fuzzy highlight “Faith in Something,” one of my personal favorite Hemsworth tracks to date. You can stream the entire project below and grab it on Bandcamp.
