Solid as a rock

Nashville trio BASECAMP has been buzzing since they dropped their self-titled EP in 2013. At the time, critics categorized them in the electro-R&B sector, but their sound has so many more layers than any one genre can contain. Many have been quick to compare BASECAMP to Sampha, and it's understandable given that both of their rich, uncategorizable sounds emerged seemingly out of nowhere.
The experience of listening to BASECAMP is almost the equivalent of following dark clouds of smoke that eventually lead you to the flames of a blazing fire. Despite this intensity, their music still manages to feel smooth and easy.
Today, the trio is finally releasing their long-awaited In Stone EP on Skrillex's OWSLA label. We asked BASECAMP member Aaron Miller to talk us through the inspiration behind each track on the EP. Read it while you stream the entire project, below.
