After sharing the stage, the two opted to continue their collaboration and are now preparing to release their debut EP, 'Turn It Up,' on DJ /rupture's and Matt Shadetek's tropical bass label Dutty Artz.
The three-song EP features production by Linzy, label owners /rupture and Shadetek, and /rupture's Nettle band member Brent Arnold, and is scheduled for release on July 12 as both a limited edition 7-inch vinyl and digital download. Kalup and Franco are reportedly planning to shoot video clips for each of the songs on the EP, featuring some "surprise guest cameos."
