Contra $aturn Taps Into His Dark Side in Bassy New Trap/Hip-Hop EP ‘Dark Side $aturn’
With eerie melodies and distorted 808s, Contra $aturn brings a darker twist to the typical lyrical bravado of fast cars, money, and women touted by mainstream rappers in his bassy new EP, ‘Dark Side $aturn’.
Released in July 2020, ‘Dark Side $aturn’ sees the Florida-based rapper and producer bring a broody and electrifying new hip-hop energy on tracks ‘Damn’, ‘Playmaker’, ‘Rubber Band’ and ‘Lane’.
“On this EP, I wanted to experiment with moving away from typical industry rap melodies and tap into the darker, moodier side of my creativity.”
The EP was produced entirely by Contra $aturn, from mixing and mastering to cover design, at The Palace Recording Studio, Florida’s top-rated recording studio,
which the rapper co-owns. $aturn also produced the beats on each track, except for ‘Lane’, which was produced by ATMadeTheBeat.
Whether you’re working out or bumping beats down the interstate, this explicit, unorthodox new hip-hop EP will get you vibing. The ‘Dark Side $aturn’ EP is now available on all platforms.
