Up and coming producer Tek.lun has released a new EP entitled “TheGreenBox,” and I for one, am not mad at it. Released for free download on Soundcloud through HW&W Recordings, the Baltimore based beat-maker isn’t even old enough to buy a drink at the bar, but has composed some jams that will definitely get the club crowd moving.

Starting off with the attention-grabbing “Heart In Mind,” you can hear Tek.lun’s hip-hop roots. The track masterfully includes a sample of “Try Again” by Aaliyah (originally from the cinematic masterpiece, Romeo Must Die). The EP then takes a quick turn to the current, as Gravez collaboration “Elevate,” features a few bars from everyone’s new favorite song “IDFWU.”

Not one to limit himself, Tek.lun is also a part of hip hop collective Nasa8 and raps under the name “Varth Dader.” With a solid four tracks like this, I’m definitely tuned into what the young kid has in store. Stream and download the EP below.
