VIDEO: Imperial | Agnes & Lupus’ “Amongst Wolves”


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.

VIDEO: Imperial & K.I.N.E.T.I.K. featuring Tone Richardson’s “Go Hard”


Four months ago, I posted a song by Imperial & K.I.N.E.T.I.C., a UK hip-hop who have some good things going for them. It was a cut done with Tone Richardson called “Go Hard”, and I’d like to think people who had taken the time to listen felt they all went hard on the vibe provided. Now that vibe is taken to a new level with a video for the song, done in support of their Pencils Not Pistols EP, which you can download for free below.
