Oakland producer Drew Arnett, a.k.a. Drew Banga, the musical director behind rising hip-hop star Duckwrth and the mastermind behind various hit singles from other artists around the Bay, steps out from behind the credits to create an original track "Multi Color" feat. 1-O.A.K., Ymtk, WADE08 and Amen.
With early T-Pain vibes in the chorus and a glistening OutKast melody, Drew effortlessly blends together a wide spectrum of vocal styles from the varying featured artists while embracing the track's original intent portrayed in its title, "Multi Color". Drew stays true to that notion and weaves together these layered harmonies of modern R&B and subdued hip-hop bars. It all flows incredibly smooth and seamlessly while still maintaining a forward moving pace avoiding the track from ever sounding repetitive. "Multi Color" is out now on Text Me Records.
Since using Kamaiyah’s 2015 hit “I’m On” as his introductory instrumental, producer Drew Banga has hit the ground running lacing acts like Rexx Life Raj and virtually everybody in the Bay Area with beats. And now, after crossing over to being in front of the boards, Banga drops his new single, “Multi Color,” via Text Me Records. For this youthful, pop-infused record, Drew Banga reunites with 1-O.A.K as well as Tmtk, WADE08 and Amen.
However, being as Banga has established himself as a successful musical director for L.A.-bred artist, Duckwrth, “Multi Color” and his step to the front is just another way the Oakland creative is displaying his diverse palette. “There’s not an artist in the Bay I haven’t produced for, done a song with or gone on tour with,” he says. “I’m a producer. I don’t sing, but I write. I try to make whatever I put my hands on better than what I heard before. And I’m all about cultivating people’s sound.”
