Great Dane’s debut on Alpha Pup Records, Alpha Dog, is one of my favorite releases of the year so far. It has been awhile since I heard such a diverse and stylistic composition of beats on a release. The style of beats and instrumentals has erupted in the music community as of late but I always have a hard time enjoying more than one or two tracks on most of these big names blowing up the internet waves. The moment I hit play on the first track it gave me a nostalgic original feeling. This wasn’t just going to be like everything else out there I thought. You can tell that there was time and thought put behind this.
This release definitely caters to those beat heads, anyone into that open atmospheric hip-hop, and even those lush tunes. The variety that is inside this release truly showcases that Great Dane is someone we all need to be following and looking out for his next cut at all times. Great Dane clearly has a grasp of what is going on in the beat scene and provides a stellar take on all these diverse styles and forms out there. Overall this is a must have. The official release date is set for March 12th, 2013. A massive shout out to Daddy Kev and all the people over at Alpha Pup. They are truly releasing some of the freshest music out there.
