San Jose, CA’s Righteous Reg has no interest in mainstream b.s. As he says in the catchy “K.I.M.”: “I can’t stand some fake shit!” So instead of pandering with trendy grooves, Reg likes to spike his tracks with unexpected (even jarring) elements, like the jazzy, abrasive saxophone that accompanies his distinctive, stream-of-consciousness flow on the song “Chasing Hills In La La Land.” The aforementioned “K.I.M.” has a prominent horn element (clarinet?) throughout. The artist then pitches a change-up with “Like That,” a track that’s spiced up with a crispy vintage-vinyl crackle that lays the foundation for a Cypress Hill- type joint. Keep doing what you’re doing, Reg. Somebody’s got to!
