Take a Trip Inside SneakGuapo's 'Glass House'
A triumph that lands somewhere between the drawl of A$AP Mob and the industrial skittishness of Ratking while operating entirely on its own ground.

Earlier this month we premiered "AYEEEE" from Thraxxhouse member SneakGuapo's latest project, Glass House. We called it "an exceptionally smooth track with an uneasy haunted house vibe and a bass that'll bust windows if you turn it up loud enough". Now the time has come to bump the whole damn thing in full, which you can find premiering below.
With doom beats offset by minimal instrumentation, a general atmosphere of uneasiness, and a range of producers including OhZone - who's also produced for Chief Keef and other rappers on Keef's own label - Glass House is a triumph that lands somewhere between the drawl of A$AP Mob and the industrial skittishness of Ratking while operating entirely on its own ground. Although the haunted house vibe is often switched out for some turnt-up or cloudier moments, the latter point is certainly true of the whole release, so be careful blasting this in your car.
SneakGuapo will be on the Thraxxhouse/GothBoiClique Mini Tour in 2016 with Mackned, Horse Head, and Wicca Phase Springs Eternal. Dates below.
