We're endlessly proud of our DC (via London) heritage, so there's little that makes us happier than hearing fresh new noise coming out of the Chocolate City, an area vastly underrepresented in the nation's music scene in recent years. So it's with great pleasure that we introduce you to newcomer Brenton Duvall, an 18 year old production sensation representing hard for the DMV that reminds us of a young Xaphoon Jones, with his wise-beyond-his-years production savvy and a keen ear for mashups that flow so naturally it's hard to believe they weren't originally conceived by the artists involved that way. Here's a fresh double-drop intro to Duvall's work, featuring the amazing "Against A Mad World" - which finds Tupac getting mixed up with Gary Jules over an ominous original beat from Duvall - and "Ambien", on which Lil' Wayne and Trina get tripped up over a stripped back version of Passion Pit's "Sleepyhead".
