Are you down?

Rockie Fresh asks that important question on one of the many standouts (and a personal favorite) from his recently released The Night I Went To… project, “Down To Roll,” which received the visual treatment that it deserved. Love this joint.

Review: Rockie Fresh – The Night I Went To…

Words by Rohit Loomba (@Poombster)

Today’s Hip-Hop is often thrown into one of many categories which have developed over the course of the genre: trill, drill, gangsta, trap, east-coast, west-coast, hyphy, along with numerous others that have developed over the years. But every now and then there comes Hip-Hop which just doesn’t fall into any existing category and that’s exactly what Rockie Fresh delivers with The Night I Went To. The 13-track mixtape was recorded while Fresh was on tour with G-Eazy and comes two years after last mixtape, Fresh Veggies.

TNIWT boasts brilliant production. The production on “The Landing” underscores Fresh’s introspection with simple piano chords which later gives away into a more lush second half. On “Are You With Me” a bass line, reminiscent of that on Mobb Deep’s “Quiet Storm”, is matched with a simple melody and guitar riffs that complement Fresh seamlessly. Elsewhere, the guitar and tropical drums of “Call Me” are sure to get almost everyone’s feet moving and head bobbing. One of the strongest production efforts samples Maverick Sabre’s “I Need” for a track that pays homage to its original by retaining the same name. Darker production efforts are found on “Down to Roll” and “Tell Me” and utilize clever drum patterns. Each track on the mixtape is meticulously produced with no real lackluster production efforts found.
