On Battle Tested, the first release from Rob Bailey & The Hustle Standard. The collaborative duo has created a genre all of their own, mixing aggressive Hip-Hop beats, Dub-Step basses and elements of Alternative-Rock with Rob’s Hardcore vocal stylings. From the opening assault of “Hold Strong” to the fluid, synth heavy, “Never Settle”, Battle Tested is a vigorous, empowering, never-stopping set of tracks that hit you fast and hard.
The fellas made serious noise in September 2011 with their explosive first single “Work Hustle Kill”, experiencing a tidal wave of fan-response-videos and demand for more music. So back into the studio they went, recording more gut-busting (literally), fist-pumping, powerhouse anthems.
When asked about the inspiration behind creating this EP, Rob says, “There are parts of songs I like when I’m working out, so I wanted to make full length songs that were nothing but parts of songs I’d want to work out to.” Charley adds, “Basically, we wanted to make high energy music that would motivate people to do better and be better.”
