16-Piece Hip-Hop Collective The Urban Renewal Project Drop New Single "Red Eye"

One of two things can happen when you put 16 talented musicians together: cacophony or magic. In the case of Los Angeles jam band The Urban Renewal Project, you get both. On their newest single “Red Eye,” they deliver a dizzying hip-hop track packed with groovy influence.

“Red Eye” wastes no time — it can’t, with sixteen people contributing their wide-ranging skills, so it kicks off with smashing gong and shimmering percussion as a hip-hop beat unfurls underneath lazing rap delivery. The verses alternate between voices, clever wordplay tossed between warring tones and speeds, but the arrangement remains consistent — inspired by Balinese music and culture, “Red Eye” is spun into a dizzy, dazzling soundscape of low percussive pumps, big orchestral moments, and heavy brass buzzes, successfully merging jazzy Asian influence with punchy Americanized rap.

Listen to “Red Eye” below and connect with The Urban Renewal Project on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
