You may remember a video by Point Blank earlier this month with one of the better-known names in modern EDM, Gammer. As well as providing a with a deconstruction of one of his most successful tracks, ‘The Drop’, he also stuck around to piece together a newfangled genre-roulette of two concepts you might not expect to see side-by-side: Tropical Donk.
Having decided which beast would be getting invented out of two words picked from a hat, Gammer proficiently improvises the new genre with the guidance of DJ Ravine. We think the results were surprisingly easy on the ear, based on the circumstances.
