If you had a time machine, and decided to drop in on a sheltered French techno DJ from the 90’s and totally mind-fuck him with a Three 6 Mafia record, we imagine you would inadvertently create Kaptain Cadillac. Part of the Booty Call Records family, KC is all about putting rap on a treadmill and jacking up the speed.
Lil Scrappy – Big Boi (Kaptain Cadillac Remix)
A ghetto-tech revivalist and clearly an American rap nerd, the Kaptain goes for the same absurd aesthetic that DJ Isaac, DJ Assault, and the other ghetto tech/booty bass artists were going for back in the day. But what they didn’t have was a generation of trap music to draw from. That’s what makes “trap tech” an interesting genre, proving that ridiculous + ridiculous = fun. You either have the energy for Kaptain Cadillac or you don’t, just like you’re either drunk at 5 a.m. or you’re not.
