Destructo Recruits Yo Gotti, Kevin Gates & Denzel Curry For "Bandz"

Bass-house producer DESTRUCTO is back with another hip-hop banger. “Bandz” featuring Yo Gotti, Kevin Gates and Denzel Curry is out today (March 26) on Parametric Records. Electronic and hip-hop worlds collide as three of the most notable talents in rap right now pop over DESTRUCTO’s slow thumping production.


Listen to “Bandz” by DESTRUCTO
featuring Yo Gotti, Kevin Gates and Denzel Curry now here:


“Bandz” is the second collaboration between DESTRUCTO and Yo Gotti following “Loaded.” The track recently received two fresh takes via remixes from Walker & Royce and SQWAD.  It follows the release of DESTRUCTO’s remix of Idris Elba’s “Ballie” featuring KAH-LO.


In addition to Yo Gotti, “Bandz” also taps two of today’s most talented rappers. Multi-platinum recording artist Kevin Gates has racked up over seven billion streams. His most recent album I’M HIM debuted #1 on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Album Sales chart and at #4 on the Billboard 200 chart, making it his fourth top 10 album. Miami-based rapper Denzel Curry is one of the hottest emerging acts in rap music. Most recently, Curry released Unlocked, an impressive EP alongside producer Kenny Beats.


Since 2011, DESTRUCTO (Gary Richards) has dominated the dance floor on his own terms. He went from the acclaimed Technology EP (2012) and Higher EP (2013) to high profile remixes for artists as diverse as Depeche Mode, Giorgio Moroder, Major Lazer, Rob Zombie, Digitalism and more. 2014 saw the precision-guided producer in the realm of g-house (where rap melds with house music) introduce his singular solo style with the West Coast EP, boasting collaborations with YG, Ty Dolla $ign, Problem, Too $hort, Warren G and Kurupt.  Along the way, he’s touched down for shows everywhere from Australia and Fiji to Tokyo and Ibiza in addition to crisscrossing the country on alongside the likes of D.R.A.M., E-40, iLoveMakonnen, Anna Lunoe, Wax Motif, REZZ, Felix Da Housecat and more.  Released in early 2017, the RENEGADE EP featured “4Real” with Ty Dolla $ign & iLoveMakonnen, as well as collaborations with E-40 and Too $hort, Pusha T & Starrah, Problem and Freddie Gibbs.  Other releases from the DESTRUCTO arsenal include “F*cking ShIt Up” featuring Busta Rhymes, “Boom” featuring Problem, “Bassface” (with remixes by DJ Koos, Golf Clap and Dillon Nathaniel), “Loaded” featuring Yo Gotti (with new remixes from Walker & Royce and SQWAD) and “Shots To the Dome” with Gerry Gonza, with Chris Lake x DESTRUCTO’s “Y.O.D.O.” out on Lake’s Black Book label.
