Baltimore veterans .rar Kelly and Lemz come together as Normaling.
Baltimore club is resurgent not just because of breakbeat masters and Boiler Rooms (although those certainly help): the city’s queer scene has spent the last few years crossbreeding Bmore club with ballroom and other underground sounds for an even more raucous approach to club music.
That latter tradition is all over the debut EP by Normaling, Corpus Callosum (Latin for the “tough body” that connects the left and right brains). The duo, comprised of .rar Kelly and Lemz, expands the palette of Baltimore club with techno, electro, hip-hop and more, enlisting leading ladies of Baltimore Rye Rye and TT the Artist for the Miami bass-laced ‘Low Drop’ and rising rapper DDm on the true-to-its-title ‘Shade’.
Stream Corpus Callosum below; the EP is due out on August 25 via the duo’s Space Is The Place imprint.
