Producer Girl Talk has reunited with Dreamville rapper Bas for the single “Fallin’.”
“Fallin’” is the pair’s second collaboration, following “Outta Pocket” from the deluxe (or “Director’s Cut”) version of the 2019 Dreamville compilation Revenge of the Dreamers III.Girl Talk takes a less-is-more approach to his production on “Fallin’,” allowing Bas’ flow to unfold over a sultry R&B-meets-trap beat.
“Bas came on my radar with his Too High to Riot project in 2016,” Girl Talk recalled in a statement. “I was really into his range. He’s a technical rapper who also has an amazing melodic sense. It’s kind of difficult to define his style, which is something I always admire. When we connected, I had a wide variety of beats ready for him. This was the first one that I played, and he was off and running!
“There were a couple different tangential parts where he completely switched up the style of his vocals. For those sections, we ended up re-doing some of the arrangements and production on the spot. The whole thing came together quickly!”
The new single dropped alongside the news that Girl Talk was pressing two of his albums—2008’s Feed the Animals and 2010’s All Day—on vinyl for the first time. Though the first run of pressings have already sold out, Girl Talk will be issuing a repress, he announced on Twitter.
