Inspired by an anti-social media movement aimed at building more natural relationships through departure from social technology, ‘Deconnecter’ is a new hip-hop project being released this summer that combines light synths and field recordings from Bristol / Japan to form a lofi bouncing atmosphere, created predominantly as a staging for female vocalists/MC’s. The project is spearheaded by instrumentalist Saul Bell.

Bio:Saro has been producing music for 8 years, in which he has been featured on BBC Introducing and 6 Music and is currently working on his first full-length record – based around themes of over-consumption, egocentrism and digitality. Inspired by a French anti-social media movement aimed at building more natural relationships through departure from social technology, ‘Deconnecter’ is a new hip-hop project being released this summer that combines light synths and field recordings from Bristol / Japan to form a lo-fi bouncing atmosphere, created predominantly as a staging for female vocalists/MC’s.

 

Los Angeles emcee Jeremy Ian Thomas also known as Surreal delivers a poignant single titled “Do Better”. As the title suggests, he suggests alternative ways for mankind to rise above the strife and do better to make the world a better place. With media becoming more and more homogenized this song is a reverse hypnosis to break the mold and get the listener into the universal flow of understanding and love.

 

“Words sometimes fail,” says the multidimensional artist. He made the track, wrote the verses and even created the visual that will drop in a few weeks so only having a handful of words over the music was very intentional. “The audience is way smarter than we give them credit for, especially the younger generation. Your vibrations speak louder than your words” Calling us to Do Better, and find a better way doesn’t need specificity because we all know what we need to do.

 

LA rap duo Sensugang follow up their previous single “Melon Juice” with a solid trap banger titled “Cyborg”. Backed by sparse synth keyboard arrangements and bass-heavy drum patterns, the sub-heavy ‘Cyborg’ provides the perfect conduit for sensugang to deliver their most commanding offering yet. Taken the less travelled road, the duo, Yung Sensu and Gangaroo Pouch comfortably take a seat behind the computer monitor, trading crypto and moving ounces across California through the power of the internet.

The single is taken from their debut EP Chaos Control.
