Louis Mackey – Silex Scintillans (World Around Single Series)
Louis Mackey returns to the World Around Records Single Series after his track ‘Daytime Augeries‘ was featured a few weeks back. The beat on ‘Silex Scintillans’ is noticeably minimal and sombre in comparison but the discourse is just as piercing as critical fancy and other negligible whims are given perspective against the cold nature of the universe. Perhaps. You can never be sure with World Around Records. Listen and catch-up with the series so far.

Flying Lotus – Masquatch feat. DOOM
Following up his collab with Krazy Bone for GTAV, Flying Lotus shares ‘Masquatch’, a collaboration with DOOM. As you might expect from such a collaboration the two produce some weird and wonderful sounds; utterly strange, but then I’m surprised that they haven’t worked together before! Hopefully we’ll see more new stuff from them soon. Anyway this is from the revamped FlyLo FM which, according to the man himself, ‘might become a thing’.
Divine – Let’s Get It On
BK emcee Divine is keeping the ball rolling with visuals for the joint ‘Let’s Get It On’ from the recently released LP Ghetto Rhyming. A self-directed emcee who has toured and kicked bars with legends and vets in the rap game, Divine is slowly etching his name in to the hip-hop consciousness letter by letter. ‘Let’s Get It On’ is devoid of the glamour and glitz of more entitled music and insteadvdives right into the thick of things. A beautiful blend of hardbody bars and beats.
Peep the video and go out and support Divine..
Diamond District – A Part Of It All
Diamond District release some truly dope visuals for ‘A Part Of It All’, taken from their recent album March On Washington. The trio, formed of Oddisee, Uptown XO and yU, lace Oddisee’s melodic production with some incredible lyrics, and the visuals are really well done and engaging – it’s not too often that VFX are done tastefully on the underground scene.
