Our friends at This Thing are putting together some vital releases and solid events (just ask anyone who went to the Sequence Festival), and their latest one is definitely worth checking out.
Whimsical Raps is the new album from Wooshie and Galapagoose under their collaborative pseudonym Gil Michell. A long-form exercise in meditative arrangement and rhythmic deconstruction.
“New territory for both artists, no doubt about it. Or maybe even just straight up new territory. New ground being — oh so cooly — trod…” - Tiny Mix Tapes
“(‘No Friends‘) boasts a rubbery, 808 drum beat and a melodic, synth-like bass line. An almost orchestrated hook and some heavily-looped voice make this cut an abstract interpretation of ghetto house.” - Ad Hoc
