The album “Dead End” is a compilation of hard-hitting and dark sounding and cinematic Drill songs. The songs make use of various instrumentation and moods. Partly cinematic and spooky using wobbling 808 basslines and pianos, partly classical using solo violin melodies and strings.
According to Wikipedia, “Drill is a subgenre of hip hop music that originated in Chicago streets in the early 2010s. It is sonically similar to the trap music subgenre and lyrically similar to the gangsta rap subgenre (…).”
A notable regional subgenre emerged in the UK where is has been partially banned by the Police and politicians due to its profane lyrical content.
Musically, Drill music is similar to Trap music and typically contains distorted and heavily filtered keyboard instruments (e.g. piano) and a sliding 808 bass line.
