West Coast rhymeslayer Thurz has devised the perfect solution in giving the population of the country who are experiencing chilly temperatures a taste of that California sunshine with his new Designer EP, overseen by Marlon Travis Barrow.

The seven-track offering sponsored by Red Bull is a liquid journey through groovy Hip-Hop and overall life bliss. There’s the Funkadelic “Big Bang” (with BJ The Chicago Kid, Clyde Carson, Overdoz. and Preston Harris) that excels in the boogie-woogie while the popular “Perfect Words” is a much more subdued number that paints lyrics like a watercolor canvas all across the track. Short and sweet is the motto of today’s modern rapper and Designer is tailor-made to fit the needs of listeners who don’t have a lot of time to sift through the competition.

Next week, Thurz will join Run The Jewels and Mystery Skulls on one of Red Bull Sounds’ sold-out Los Angeles concert series stages. The new music already sounds like a live experience, so expect its dopeness factor to be magnified in full.

Listen to Thurz’ Designer project courtesy of the Soundcloud link below. Hit the flip to see the L.A. native express his creative side in an EPK. The extender player is also available for a reasonable price on iTunes.
