On time this week is the latest installment in BOTW. Dope female producers can be hard to come by but here we have Chloe Martini, an up-and-coming 20 year-old producer out of Warsaw, Poland and her impressive new REBORN EP. The first track Temptation features a fresh SWV sample and has been getting it’s fair share of heat. The 4-track EP showcases the artist’s unique sound and we’re sure there is more dopeness to come from Martini. The project can be streamed below, but be sure to head over to Bandcamp to show your support where her REBORN EP is available for free (or name your price).
