Jared Paul ’11 is not to be fucked with.
Jared Paul takes his sense for solid beat building and mixes it with guest verses by Wes music veteran Josh Smith ’11, an awesome variety of samples (from ethereal to frantically energetic), metal (no, seriously: listen for the blastbeats), and…well, weird shit all on the same album, Ubeatquitous – usually with several on the same track. Possibly a little bit in the spirit of more-recent-than-Alvin-Lucier Wesleyan musical experimenters Shloggfather and Professor MEGASLAM, Jared Paul takes the instrumental and transforms it into more than one half of a hip hop track. Somehow, he manages to simultaneously display diverse musical tastes and a solid attention span within the same cohesive work. Listen if you want to hear something different. Like, Obama-sipping-whiskey-with-dinosaurs different.
