Casper & B. - New Phone Who Dis feat. Pell

Critical Praise for Casper & B

“No offense to Pell, but Casper and B could‚Äôve put just about any artist on ‚ÄúNew Phone Who Dis‚ÄĚ and it would‚Äôve been a murder weapon. However, by adding the enigmatic New Orleans MC specifically, the energy on this¬†rowdy record is taken to new heights, offering an immediate spike to any mundane mood. This¬†will¬†be played in clubs and people¬†will¬†go crazy for it.” –¬†The Smoking Section

The Video: 

Los Angeles production duo¬†Casper & B.¬†join New Orleans rapper¬†Pell,¬†dancing L.A. locals, a Domino’s delivery man, and twerking animated phones (!) in¬†their crazy new video for infectious summer anthem “New Phone Who Dis,”¬†which¬†The Smoking Section asserted, “will be played in clubs and people will go crazy for it.” On the track, from the duo’s recently released debut album Low Battery Summer,¬†Casper & B. chopped the vocals to create the chorus, a signature element of their production influenced by the¬†Lite Feet¬†dance style. The new music video, premiered today by Nylon, manages to surpass the already-high energy level of the original track, experimenting with color schemes, animation, and¬†Windows 95¬†screen saver backgrounds, while a diverse cast of partiers¬†wild out to the track.

Released¬†on 6/27,¬†Casper & B’s¬†Low Battery Summer album¬†synthesizes influences, such as hyphy, go-go, New Orleans bounce,¬†Blink 182, and early¬†Kanye West, into a vibrant musical melting pot.¬†‚ÄúWhen we decided to create our own album, we actually sat down and started listening to all of our favorite music from our entire life,‚ÄĚ they explain. ‚ÄúWe didn‚Äôt know what our sound was yet, but we knew we wanted it to be fun.‚ÄĚ With a¬†desire to make people dance to¬†catchy hooks and upbeat production, boosted by raps and additional vocals by a collection of cutting-edge collaborators, Casper & B. are certain to stand out from the norms of new music. Prior to the album’s release, the duo dropped”Leave Me Alone,” premiered by GoodMusicAllDay, which¬†finds the Los Angeles-based duo enlisting¬†Wes Period and¬†OG Swaggerdick¬†for a maximalist, energetic, and infectious dance track,s well as¬†the CHARGE UP!¬†dance mix for¬†Nest HQ‘s Nest Mix series.¬†Earlier this year, the duo released the¬†Michael Christmas and¬†Marc E. Bassy-assisted single “Work Hard,” which debuted via¬†Pigeons & Planes¬†and has been played over 108,000 times on Soundcloud.

Please contact Michelle or Dharmic if interested in talking with Casper & B.

The Background:

LA-based producers Casper & B. expertly balance rap, dance, and pop strictly on their terms. Mixing Pete Rock and Madlib fundamentals with nuances of hyphy, go-go, Lite Feet, New Orleans bounce, and marching band sounds, the two have taken their experiences working professionally in both hip-hop and pop to create a hybrid sound of their own. Their upcoming debut project, Low Battery Summer, which features Pell, Charles Hamilton, Michael Christmas, Marc E. Bassy, and more, demonstrates how Casper and B. expertly flip pop and classical sensibilities on their head, blunted with bass drops and breakdowns. Low Battery Summer is aimed for release on June 20th.
