|Huntsville, Alabama's G-Side are ushering in a new era for Southern rap. Comprised of two of the hardest-grinding MCs in the business (ST 2 Lettaz and Yung Clova) plus the bass-heavy, space-age sounds of local production gurus Block Beattaz, G-Side are an inescapable force. In G-Side you can hear the gangsta stylings of UGK, the fierce originality of Dungeon Family and the independent spirit of No Limit, with a mix of woozy, synth-based production and sharp, style-steeped rhymes. 2011 was the group's biggest year yet, with a feature in December, 2011, SPIN for their article on the ''changing face of hip hop''.|
''Relaxin'' is G-Side's first vinyl release and also the debut of Juiceboxxx's new label Thunder Zone ENT. On the flip Brooklyn's Javelin (Thrill Jockey/Luaka Bop) give G-Side's ''Impossible'' what Pitchfork calls ''the full pre-AraabMuzik Dipset production treatment, complete with a triumphant female-soul vocal backdrop.''
