A chaotic nightmare dream sequence set within a dystopian city landscape. We find ourselves amidst a psychedelic haze, on the roof of a tower block, staring out into the neon and grey of the city vistas. The song is a testimony to finding oneself completely lost within a moment of desperation. The spiralling sensations of both the known and unknown, of the remembered, the current and the impending; a myriad of emotions crashing in waves. Featuring an intro that might fit an Interpol track, the composition subsequently crashes into six/four time, guiding us on a hypnotic journey of undulating sub bass and waves of crescendoing guitars and synth parts.
Morti Viventear Decacremix:
The much sought after Montreal-based producer Morti Viventear goes to work on his sinister Decacremix; expertly twisting the track into a down-tempo four/four exercise in moody grindhouse atmospherics, creeping melodies and crunchy breakbeats. An absolute must.
Soon-to-be legendary German producer Dot brings mayhem and fire to his reinterpretation of the Black Monoliths, delivering a remix that blends noise-rap crunch with ethereal electronica, before finally going to town with a huge post-rock finish; all immaculately crafted to the last detail.

Jesus what an absolutely stunning collection of hip-hop. If I have to be a dick, this album is more of a mix tape in style, the aesthetics of each song is just so different, there's a certain level of narrative disconnect. That said, the actual songs themselves are fucking ill. Packed with dope features, each one matched with Scott's production makes for a genuinely rewarding listen. Rest easy man, you'll be missed. always_kos
