The underground is filled with a lot of familiar genres but some artists are bending those same genres right in front of our eyes. LORDHERETIC is an artist in his own league and we’re going to break down their latest track “SLOWDOWN!”


Let’s talk about the instrumental. If you’re a fan of LORDHERETIC you know he’s very familiar with phonk and phonk-adjacent genres. This is no different, LORDHERETIC teams up with Esthetic Gloom for this instrumental and it’s everything you want from these two long standing collaborators. Mixing darker melodies with fast pace drums makes for a wonderful sound from Esthetic Gloom, along with hard hitting 808’s what else could you want from this instrumental? 

When it comes to the vocals, the hook is a big player in this track but don’t let that distract you from the verses LORDHERETIC laid down. The flow and cadence on these verses might be some of LORDHERETIC’s smoothest to date, this is not your typical phonk track. The first verse is mixed with motivation and a hard truth. Speaking on everything from being hated on to the ultimately unfortunate obstacles the average person in America faces. The second verse is nothing short of an easter egg for all LORDHERETIC fans, reworking his famous lines from “IWANNADIEONTV” this makes for a perfect closing verse on this track. The hook will be the part that brings people back, with everything from hype to motivation this is easily a track any new or old supporter can replay as a go-to. 

The overall theme of this track is everything LORDHERETIC is and more. A hard-hitting, fast-paced instrumental mixed with high-energy vocals throughout the track while also painting a perfect picture of who LORDHERETIC is. The aesthetics are something out of an early 2000’s glow in the dark obscure children’s book. The grittiness mixed in with the color pallet makes for a wonderful piece of art for this track. 

LORDHERETIC had a very consistent 2023 from all angles while maintaining a forever growing sound and we’re very excited to see what he has planned for the new year.
