Crunc Tesla "Who’s the Leader of the Club?”

Kid606’s Tigerbeat6 label is most often home to rabble-rousing noisemakers, but Atlanta’s Crunc Tesla (aka DJ Raedawn) defies the norm with his brand of energetic all-encompassing hip-hop. A former winner of DJ Q-Bert’s Skratch Master Award, Raedawn fuses his hometown’s signature style of hip-hop with booming traces of grime and Baltimore Club bass, as well as electronic experiments. As connected to Squarepusher as OutKast, this lead track off his debut EP proves there’s more to ATL hip-hop than meets the ear. (
