    I'm 100% sure Danny Brown can rap over any beat ever.
    And Myke would be hyped to know they did make a mini-documentary!

      Absolutely! Bring this kinda fire back

      No trap drums. No boring verse, chorus, verse structures. Unique & varied bass? Not just spinz & zaytoven 808’s? Please god more of this

    • oogie googie
      oogie googie 6 months ago +15

      @Post Nut Clarity There’s some trappy drums, but the instrumentals are so eclectic and chaotic that you barely notice it. “Burfict!” for example is pretty trappy.

    • Blu I.X.
      Blu I.X. 6 months ago +13

      @Post Nut Clarity there's def trap drums

    • Post Nut Clarity
      Post Nut Clarity 6 months ago +5

      @Blu I.X. nah you’re definitely right. There’s elements that are almost Deconstructed Trap music. I just meant trap in its most common form but I def could’ve worded that bettwr

    Cant believe no one mentioned garbage pale kids, that beat and sample is crazy. Cant believe they even managed to rap over something like that

    Hopefully this album will plant a seed in producers to start giving us more fresh & adventurous stuff. We so tired of these slidy 808’s, lex Luger hats.
    Tired of getting excited for albums just for them to sound like they could’ve came out in 2015

    This is one of the WILDEST and most creative albums ever made!! JPEGMAFIA & Danny Brown's chemistry throughout the whole album was freaking phenomenal!! Also, I personally think these are JPEG's best beats he's made!

  • ImpendingRiot83

    If Vol. 1 was the last time Peggy’s using the 404 I can’t wait to see what kind of thing he’ll go for in a next volume. I feel like this is gonna be a series where he embarks on some of the weirdest and most left-field limitations and conditions he can think of.

    This probably my biggest dream collaboration of all time. I've been telling dudes Danny top 5 rappers rn and Peggy is top 5, but in artistry. This really was how music can be when you go all out with no restraint. When you think about how much they probably paid for samples alone. They simply did this for the fans and that's the dopest part to me

    • Harmony Olivier Baker

      Best part of the album is that it’s only volume one.

  • Royal Warlord
    Royal Warlord 6 months ago +16

    This is the album i been waiting Peggy to make where hes able to bridge the gap of his more unqiue “weirdo” sound to a more accessible level and its masterful as hell. This is gonna be a lot of year end lists for sure especially with how much grows on you even though it still rips so hard. Good to see you all enjoyed it well

    • Miegodo
      Miegodo 6 months ago +2

      Danny Brown really is a bridge between the experimental world and the mainstream world. I hope Peggy gets more attention and success from here on out.

  • David Pope

    They finally made an album for Myke

  • A Love Supreme
    A Love Supreme 5 months ago +6

    the production on this album is absolutely incredible, i haven't heard anything like it. It's like if El-P and Odd Future had a baby and fed the baby cocaine for breakfast lunch and dinner and only let it listen to Metal and Death grips😂😂and that only touches on 40% of the influences you can hear in this chaotic jungle of noise I love it

  • Beinerth Chitiva Machado

    I LOVE THIS ALBUM, it's my AOTY so far.

  • Abyss

    Shout out to everyone at Dead End Hip Hop for how passionate and articulate y'all are about hip-hop. Thanks for another great review. And also big props for how far you've come in terms of production value, even though I sometimes miss the "standing around in a parking lot" days lol
    PS: This will probably be my AOTY, absolutely genius collab

  • Khoi Kidd
    Khoi Kidd 6 months ago +6

    This album is so dope, got it on repeat eversince it came out, Peggy really killed it with the production, Danny Brown was on fire, the mixing coulda been better on him but its better on bandcamp, cant wait for them to drop a physical copy

  • natr0nzero
    natr0nzero 5 months ago +2

    I’m so here for this album . Your right the more you listen it def grows on you . Genius production by Peggy (all on SP404) , really some next level shit and Danny just compliments the chaos so well . One of my fave albums so far this year for sure. Also totally dig the BandCamp title “404s and Headaches” 😂

    Gald to see this channel review this album. I wouldn't say it is the best music Jpeg has made.
    Other than that, Jpeg keeps topping my expectations with his great work at this point.
    If he fails, I would cherish the art he's giving up till now.
    Here's to the great music 🍻

    When Beezy mentioned that JPEGMAFIA used the 404s for the drums and they started making fun about it...that part didn't sit well with me. Should have allowed him to nerd out about it because that's one of the reasons this album is what it is.

    Danny's verse on God Loves You 😭

  • Jesse Williams
    Jesse Williams 5 months ago +2

    honestly i wish more hip hop vocals were mixed this way. it lets you lean into the song to try hear the lyrics more and the music brings you in more. the super upfront vocals we are used to are great for the first time you hear a record, but the lower volume and distortion on the vocals on this record make relistening to it way better

  • Joel Osteen
    Joel Osteen 6 months ago +5

    There's a song with Danny rapping over an Al Green sample hopefully it makes it on vol 2

  • Shaan Raval
    Shaan Raval 6 months ago +14

    I think both Danny and Peggy are mixed the same, but Danny typically enunciates his words strangely, so it’s harder to understand him. That being said, I still think Peggy should’ve mixed Danny higher for that exact reason. His mixing may work better for his voice, but not for Danny. Danny can never be backseat to any beat. Either he’s dominating the shit out of it or he’s oddly in harmony with it. You can’t just bury Danny.

    • SLI Biz
      SLI Biz 6 months ago +6

      Agreed. It doesn’t feel intentional to bury Danny.. it was clear after Lean Beef Patty was “fixed” that JPEG hadn’t mastered mixing Danny’s vocals compared to his own.

    • Joel
      Joel 6 months ago

      I think it has a lot to do with their voices being different and behaving differently in the mix. I'm not a producer but Danny's voice is higher so it seems to get more easily buried by the loud synths that are in around the same frequencies.

  • Super Saumon

  • oogie googie
    oogie googie 6 months ago +8

    I think the low vocal mixing was very intentional. My theory is that in the mixing process, they were basically just treating the vocals like any other instrument track and just mixed them to where they thought it sounded the best, disregarding whether you could understand everything clearly. They wanted this album to be about chaos and hard ass music. The vocals being mixed low, smothered by effects, cutting in and out, dipping from sidechains, it all just adds to the wild, chaotic vibe

    • fraicheness
      fraicheness 6 months ago +1

      Hard agree. Peggy a mixing genius. Every track feels alive, breathing, warping.
