free download: check out rhys langston’s mind-altering ‘future suite’ #soundcheck

May 10, 2016

Like a surrealist Afrofuturist mural etched momentarily in mercury, Rhys Langston’s Future Suite is strange, beautiful, thought-provoking, and compellingly too-short. By the time your ears are able to get a handle on Rhys Langston’s dense and abstract word-play, it’s over. Anchored by beats courtesy of Kató, welcome home, Iyasa, and Rhys himself, the Suite plays like Sekou Sundiata meets J Dilla, which is to say: there’s a lot of depth, beauty, and thoughtfulness compressed into its 8 minute running time.
