Coming off the success of their debut album Gas Mask, Detroit trio The Left, made up of producer Apollo Brown, rapper Journalist 103, and DJ Soko, are treating fans with the release of a brand new EP — for free. Gas Leaks is comprised of unreleased material from Gas Mask, and while Gas Leaks was initially intended for release prior to the album, the group explains, “we wanted to bring a shock value for this album since it is was highly anticipated and Gas Leaks just puts more value and credibility to ‘Gas Mask'”.
Gas Leaks kicks off with the drum- and horn-heavy “Scared” as Journalist 103 kicks things off with, “You will now bear witness to the Left-ist movement/ So if you know like I know, step aside for the improvement.” Apollo Brown continues to show off his own abilities, fusing soulful samples while DJ Soko compliments Apollo’s work behind the boards with seamless cuts on the tracks “One Day” and “My Green,” a track that starts off with sweet sounding melodies before quickly taking a turn to the gritty. So enjoy the Leaks, but don’t forget – you’ll need to grab your Mask for the best results.
