The last time we heard a project from Boots the Blessed was back in July of 2016, when Boots dropped Cloudy With A Chance for Peace Of Mind. Now, with this new single, “Damn Shame” Boots the Blessed recruits a smooth vocalist in Kydd Jones, adding another layer to an already highly detailed record.
Boots theBlessed is a producer with a heavy percussionist background, and was subject to all sorts of musical genres while growing up. He explains;
“Previous to producing, I played drums in a hardcore/ metal core band…” Continuing, “…The first album I ever owned was ‘E. 1999 Eternal’ (Bone Thugs-N-Harmony)… More oddly, as a kid I was fed mostly country from my mom, with a little oldies here and there when I had the chance to see my dad from time to time.” As boots explains, it’s clear he had a multifaceted upbringing that continues to reflect in his work today.
With “Damn Shame”, Boots the Blessed supplies the background for a slower trap rap ballad, where Kydd Jones supplies storytelling, both artists do their part to paint a visual the whole song through. “Damn Shame” was produced by Boots the Blessed himself, and was also mixed and mastered by Kydd Jones and Jaehross.
“Damn Shame” is a wicked track, aided by haunting horns, remorseful violins, and a bursting background chorus.
Since debuting on the scene, Boots has put out an impressive catalog of music, including a six song EP, as well as a handful of other uploads, most recently, the track “…finals…” Often, Boots maneuvers percussive kicks under colorful and dreamy synthesizers, creating a synth-hop style of song. What’s most intriguing, is how well Boots tempers a background of metal and hard rock performing into a soothing and at times abstract soundscape — showcasing a special dynamic Boots the Blessed withholds.
