Sound Opinions: I$O Indies – IRIE [EP] + Puffin La [Video]


The Brooklyn rap duo of CONCHEZ YOUT & DiLLMATiC, better known as I$O Indies finally delivers their EP ‘IRIE‘ and it’s dope. Boom bap with bright, festive sounds from Jahb Less, who produced the entire project, sets a great stage for the duo to spit their introspective, worldly thoughts. Pulling from their respective cultures, their own unique styles, and mixing it into hip hop is very reminiscent of how Brooklyn is a huge blending together of many sounds and influences. I can’t say I didn’t imagine kicking it with my people with this playing through some speakers.

The ‘Voicemail Intro‘ sets a very clear tone of support, and positivity as we and I$O are blessed via prayer, something many can relate to. Tracks like ‘Live & Direct‘ and ‘Puffin La‘ help tie the feeling together, overall a smooth, great listen start to finish. After dropping some tracks for a while we also got a video for ‘Puffin La‘ which was shot by Aip and Chimp, so check that out below the video!

And here’s the video for ‘Puffin La‘ for a look into a day of I$O
