The New Orleans Newcomers Playgroundz, made up of producer friends Dontae and Mello, releases infectious new single “SUPERFUN”featuring Ash10k. Described as a kind of trap-folk song, “SUPERFUN” has a New Orleans signature jazz bouncy with a ountry influence mixed with a video game soundtrack vibes that is layered over trap drums with a swing.
Dontae had the idea for the track after playing around with trap beats made with a banjo, and then he and Mello recorded a freestyle about this crazy college girl who seems to follow them to every party and always be down to get blasted. The duo is currently in the studio putting the finishing touches on their upcoming 8-track project set to drop this summer (to be announced), with all new songs including “SUPERFUN”, and are also working on a music video to accompany their first single.
New Orleans based production duo Playgroundz is comprised of childhood best friends Dontae and Mello . Growing up around so many big musical influences – Dontae’s cousin Lil Waynebrought him into the studio in high school and was heavily influenced by the Ca$h Money team.
