After joining forces on "Girl Crush" way back in 2020, Rico Nasty and Boys Noize have made their pairing official with plans for a new EP called HVRDC0RE DR3AMZ. It's out March 29, and today, you can hear the first preview of the record.

Lead track “Arintintin” follows up on the aesthetic promises laid out by the EP's title, with its Y2K baseline setting the tempo for Rico's uncharacteristically club-centric vocals. Here's what the rapper had to say of her team-up with the producer born Alex Ridha:

Me and Boys Noize started working back in 2018... We finally met in real life after being mutuals for like a year. We did one session, it was fire! And then a few months later ended up on the Friendship Cruise together (for the first time). After the cruise, we made "Money (feat. Flomilli)" and "1+1" — a song you'll hear very soon on this project. Fast forward again, maybe 3–4 years, and we did a couple more sessions. We kept gravitating towards techno dance music. He started putting me on to German dance music, and we traded a bunch of songs back and forth. Little by little over a few days, we ended up making three more songs that we really loved and decided we wanted to share with the world. Every session was so much fun and I'm sure that energy is felt across all of these tracks. One of my favourite songs on the project is... all of them. That's why she is so short!! Talk to you later and see you guys soon.

Listen to “Arintintin” below, and stay tuned for the EP's tracklist.
