Big Trip Talks Hardships In New Single “Down Bad”

Published

on

As he gears up to announce his first headlining tour, Nashville-based recording artist Big Trip unloads the KSEA-produced cut “Down Bad.” Detailing how a newly split couple handles a breakup, the song awakens emotions of sorrow and agony commonly attached to toxic relationships.

Following the release of his “Scarface” spearheaded project ‘Phoenix’ as well as early 2023 singles “Untitled (How Bout Dat)” and “Open Letter,” the easy listen quickstrike comes accompanied by news of Trip’s forthcoming acting role alongside Country superstar Parker McCollum.

In an exclusive press statement to Medium Creative Agency, Trip details the record’s organic origins:

“The song initially started as a discussion amongst friends before I decided to lay the track down in the studio. We’ve all been through heartbreak in different forms, but not many of us are conscious of how it’ll affect us moving forward. I wanted to put a spotlight on some of the ways people try to cover up their true feelings after ending things.”

Brendan Tripodi BKA Big Trip is the frequency catching the music industry’s radar. Raised in Westchester County (New York), and residing in Tennessee, Trip was a baseball phenomenon before a horrible accident left him in a coma. After making a full recovery, he began his journey as a Hip-Hop artist. With the same competitive nature he possessed as an athlete, he pivoted to a professional career in Rap, debuting at #5 and #36 on the iTunes Hip-Hop chart and #105 on the Top 200. Though he’s opened for genre favorites like G Herbo and G-Eazy, Trip received a vast majority of his acclaim while serving as support for Marc E. Bassy’s ‘Nothing In This World’ U.S. tour dates.

Stream “Down Bad” on your DSP of choice below via Disbrow Park Records and if you’re in Nashville or surrounding areas this weekend catch him live at the Flamingo Cocktail Club on June 24th.

Grammy and Juno Award-winning producer/engineer David Strickland releases his debut solo instrumental album Foundation

Grammy and Juno Award-winning producer/engineer David Strickland has released his debut solo album Foundation viaMNRK Music, a 20 track instrumental project that seamlessly blends his hip hop-fuelled musical inspirations over the years. Boasting production credits with a who’s who of rap superstars including DrakeEPMDThe ClipseDef SquadMethod ManKardinal OffishallSaukratesMaestro Fresh Wes and many more, Foundation arrives as a follow up to his last critically-acclaimed 2022 release Spirit of Hip Hop: Elements album, and its prior accompanying series, that celebrated, showcased and highlighted a wide range of North American rap icons alongside emerging Indigenous rappers. “This album represents the first time I did something musically that was just strictly by myself. No MCs or singers. Just me alone. Producer and engineer,” explains the Scarborough-born producer/engineer who has quietly worked behind the scenes for decades, producing, mixing and/or engineering records from the likes of Canadian urban music legends including Glenn LewisGhetto ConceptJelleestoneChoclair and k-os. “I was in NYC going through beats in the studio and I was looking at the last two albums I released and the instrumental versions, and it made me think about how guys like DJ Muggs and The Alchemist have been doing instrumental albums for years. I spoke to my A&R and VP about the idea, and then locked myself in the studio and banged out and revamped a couple beats and it just all came together.” 

Strickland pays homage to his neighborhood roots on “Scarboro Forever”, and references his career sustenance on “The Journey”, but what lies at the core of the highly rhythmic, breezy and boom bap-inspired production on Foundation, is that at its core, it reminds listeners of what it takes to make a hit record – the production, which is the foundation. But the album title carries deeper layers of meaning. “Music is the foundation of any song, and I am a part of the foundation of the ‘Toronto Sound’. Any good project needs a solid foundation. And say what you want about me, but I’m a finisher. I always deliver.” Foundation delivers on all fronts, and appeals to music lovers of many stripes, as its contemporary sonic edges are rounded out nicely by its timeless classic old school musical sensibilities.
