Here’s a cool project from Illect Recordings, where it may sound hip-hop but then you realize it’s not the kind of hip-hop you would hear in an every day situation. Then again, you may already be doing that. It has a slight downtempo/trip hop vibe, a song that you’d expect to hear on Mo Wax, Solesides, or ffrr in the mid to late 90’s. You can blame that partly on the location of the duo Imperial: United Kingdom. There’s a different sensibility.
Add to that the visual component by Agnes & Lupus, and it’s obvious this is a production that is being looked upon differently. You can purchase the song below via Bandcamp.
Always great to read the write ups!
