FREE DOWNLOAD: Pegboard Nerds – BADBOI

artworks-000088444645-ni6tcx-t500x500 The new Pegboard Nerds track BADBOI is trap paradise in time lapse. The track bounces an altered rasta sample off wood blocks and bass at an insane pace. Of course, the party really starts when BADBOI backflips into half-time breaks. It’s as if you’re barreling through the tropics, island to island in hyperdrive, stopping only to go even harder. When we spoke with Pegboard Nerds earlier this summer, they said "we never seem to be able to sit down and make 'cause we feel that something’s missing." Well, call BADBOI what you...
