Bilingual artist Jake DeGuzman (aka Guspy) maintains a cool, stoner presence on his recordings, which are multi-layered with panning effects that do wonders for the guitars, though his own voice could be a bit clearer in the mix. Another aspect worth mentioning––there’s a strong reggae vibe to his songs that further re-enforces the laidback, light-one-up mood. We’re impressed by how Guspy combines elements of hip-hop, rock and reggae into his songs on a consistent basis. “Steez Luiz” might be his best joint, with its upstroked reggae guitars and rhythmic Spanish raps. “Alternate Dimension” and “El Nino” have surprising drum fills, textures, tones and humor that keep things rolling.
