New Music: Brady Watt f/ Spencer Ludwig, Dru Oliver & Randy Class “MÁS”

“This Song Is For Everybody”
HipHopDx Premiere

2017 was a stellar year for “BASSGOD” Brady Watt.  He traveled the world with DJ Premier as a member of his The Badder Band and joined Preem for a monumental NPR Tiny Desk Performance (the first such ever performance by a DJ), announced his signing to Premier’s TTT (To The Top) imprint and premiered new music with XXL, Uproxx, Mass Appeal, Billboard and Okayplayer. Brady’s also worked with a diverse group of artists as well; including Jay Electronica, G-Eazy, 2 Chainz, Joey Bada$$, Rick Ross and Curren$y.
Brady Watt has already had a phenomenal 2018 and his arrow keeps pointing up. He recently headlining gigs at the legendary Blue Note in NYC and performed at LA’s famed Low End Theory club (which has been a launch pad for artists such as Daddy Kev, Flying Lotus and many others), Brady was also featured on PRhyme 2’s (DJ Premier & Royce 5’9’s) new project (appearing on the albums closing track “Gotta Love It” which also featured Cee-Lo) which reached #1 on the iTunes Hip-Hop Chart earlier this year.  
After a recent premiere of his single “Black & White” with Billboard and his most recent single “BEEN DOWN,” Brady returns with “MÁS”; which was premiered today by HipHopDX, a collaborative effort alongside Spencer Ludwig, Randy Class and Dru Oliver (known for his work with PnB Rock, SZA, Kehlani & Fetty Wap) who returns to display his undeniable chemistry with Brady (Dru also appeared on “BEEN DOWN” as well).
Already known for his diversity and ability to cater and blend his sound to any genre and artist he works with, Brady’s diversity is on full display with “MÁS,” as the tracks worldly hue and Latin horns transports you to the stoops of Harlem on a hot and humid summer NYC day.  Suddenly, the live atmosphere of the block party becomes secondary; someone catches your attention, you are instantly hypnotized and on the chase.  All the while, all you can think about is that you want “MÁS” (More)!
“MÁS is a track a long time in the making. As a producer and composer I’m always coming up with chord changes and melodies. Some stay with me for years before they get used” Brady commented to HipHopDx.  “These chord changes and melody struck me while playing guitar about five years ago and remained upstairs until January 2018.  I finally built out the beat and loved it, though I was not yet sure what to do with it.

I met Spencer Ludwig at a party. We turned up crazy that night and became fast friends. He came to my studio in Harlem about a week later and brought two up and coming songwriters/artists Dru Oliver and Randy Class with him to see what happened if we all got in a room together. The beat for ‘MÁS’ was the first one I hit play on. They started writing immediately!

Randy, who is of Dominican lineage and from the South Bronx hopped right into writing lyrics in Spanish, I was like “woooah!.” I didn’t even think of that, though the beat has a Latin feel. My whole career is based off collaboration and instinct so I just rolled with it.

It all happened so organically and since that session we’ve become tight and been doing work together all summer. I moved out to LA for the winter to work and actually ended up doing a bunch of sessions with Dr. Dre, pulling all nighters and stuff (Utter craziness).   I spent a lot  of time mixing “MÁS” out West, (definitely with some vibes I picked up from the Doctor, who in my opinion is the best mix engineer of all time).”
