Those crazy GC kids are back with another one before they touch down once again in these New York streets tomorrow to hit Fresh Out The Box, and then to conquer Brooklyn’s 285 Kent this weekend. Nothing rare here except for the actual ingredients utilized in their standard formula of successfully pushing an uncompromising sound passed all tangible limits. My god. These guys don’t settle down and this new smokey jazz vibe got the girls screaming louder. ICE en route.
Seriously, catch Gila doing his very first DJ/beat set in NYC this Friday at 285 Kent (at the PTP rap party, alongside Rome Fortune, resident selectors Mr. Whoa Whoa and myself, and some guy named Thomas)…then come back again to see them rock their first set together, ever.
Gorgeous Children “Liberace Gems” (Prod. Gila Monsta)
As premiered by Noisey

oh yeah. you know that guy from Canada with hair?
Gila Monsta is quickly mastering the next chapter of his already-patented murky cave pond-meets-the TR-808, as evidenced within this instrumental (i.e. an apparent heightening of style in regard to important details such as the sub-bass and the various hi-hats). Leave it up to the young god to take you from a horrifying monk drone to some beautiful, cascading light show in a future city skyline. Expect to see the new Gorgeous Children EP, Ice, in a week or so.
Gila Monsta “Bone Marrow Brain Washing”
As premiered on Portal Music.
We are so fucking proud and ecstatic right now…this announcement…maaaaan….Gorgeous Children have returned! I’m not going to say much other than this was originally entitled “RAF Limo”…and that we debuted this to a lot of heavy heads a few weeks ago on Fresh Out The Box (in other words, you’re fucking up if you aren’t tuning in every Thursday). It’s dark and cold outside…why not match that tone sonically (perhaps paired with some drugs and whatever you self-annihialtion types indulge in on evenings)? Either way, the new GC EP drops at the end of the month…be ready.
Gorgeous Children “Slummer” (Prod. Gila Monsta)
Harlem hard bar writer MUMMZ recently leaked the first of his work with PTP in-house sound maker, Gila Monsta. Yeah, I didn’t even get the email about this…but I DID get to debut it pre-leak on the High Tide 2 mix with Mishka NYC. Short and deathly serious in its point made…do NOT fuck with KUZIN!
MUMMZ “Ain’t About Nothin’” (Prod. Gila Monsta)
Big up my potna dem.
Resident PTP superproducer, Gila Monsta (of Gorgeous Children fame), dropped this off at the office yesterday morn (the file was somewhat mysteriously named “Trap AYE”). The only thing that could’ve made me surpass my current level of reactionary excitement was the bass-enveloped confirmation that yes, indeed, this was a remix of the Brick Squad adlib-downpour classic…”Make The Trap Say Aye.” And, goddamn, was that previous level surpassed!
Young Gila gave this a twist or two…the traphouse drum kit is still an ever omnipresent force in the rhythm section, just in his own mode of interpretation, while the melody falls somewhere between We Are The Streets era L-O-X and an uplifting passage in a Kitaro song: basically, Styles P would probably rap on this and then be deported to a Siberian prison camp due to the copious amounts of bodies he’d be forced to catch on such new age savagery. In the end, it’s copious amounts of substance being transported/forklifted/flown off…etc. – and we are completely good with that.
OJ Da Juice Man “Make The Trap Say Aye Gila Monsta Remix” (Feat. Gucci Mane, Produced by Gila Monsta)
We had the pleasure of debuting this last night on Fresh Out The Box…plus some other unheard of things from Tree and Hefna Gwap. Do the right thing and hit the FOTB archives for the entire episode + playlist.
Gila Monsta (one half of those Gorgeous Children guys) slid a banger over to them Bay Area Greenova 13 guys. And if for some reason you missed Gila‘s last instrumental tape or the GC tape, get those very immediately.
13 “World Bout To End” (Prod. Gila Monsta)
Gorgeous Children are HERE…completely! What does that mean to you and the rest of the innocent world (I meant that…because when compared to some of this, the world seems tame as a lone Jenga piece that fell behind the couch)? Have you ever seen the religious hallucination scene in Altered States with the fast clouds and the kaleidoscopic eye goat and the seemingly forced-upon sex atop stone podium to the circle of swelling brass lungs? This is the audio version of that, but just on mind benders. Face Vega plays the sadistic bandit running around with curved blade in-hand, opening beastly throats by which to fill his arsenal of double cups. He sits in his lucid kingdom with one hand outstretched to charred tokens of deism, the other palming the pink’ish wig-mess of an unclothed, female Fashion Institute drop-out as she gingerly cleans a set of rose gold fronts. Gila Monsta posts in front with long shirttails, but instead of a frightening set of blaring horns, he applies math and science to marrying off distortion and nougatine slabs of bass. The end result, after 12 ultra-vivid scenes, is a feeling of beyond truth (something like reading an entire Dr. Bronner’s label). Floatation tank rap.
This also marks the first official full-length release from the PTP chamber of talent, and we’re damned proud of Face and Gila, our younger god dem.
Presenting Gorgeous Children
In case you missed it, or just want an easy link to watching it again, follow through to GC‘s “Grassnlean Dreams” video.
Gila Monsta has laced another proper remix featuring two of your favorites — Gila put their vocals in a whole different environment. Be sure to check his instrumental EP next week. And of course, the Gorgeous Children album will be dropping via PTP on October 17th.
Gucci Mane & Waka Flocka Flame “Pacman (Dust Trap Remix)” (Produced by Gila Monsta)
Gila Monsta does not make snap music…only slap music. Never thought you’d be meditating alongside, let alone actually listening to, Dem Franchize Boyz, huh?
Gila is currently putting the finishing touches on both his new instrumental EP (due out next week, I believe) and Gorgeous Children‘s s/t debut (10/17).
