The supergroup comprising of Flatbush Zombies and The Underachievers was bound to come together sooner or later. Both of these rap groups come out of the Flatbush neighborhood in Brooklyn, and rep the Beast Coast movement alongside Joey Bada$$ and his Pro Era collective.

The groups have joined forces as the 5 man super group Clockwork Indigo and have dropped off their first song “Butterfly Effect”. Production from Eric Arc Elliot evokes the perfect eerie vibes as a shrill, crackly loop sets the tone on the seven-minute beat as the five rappers trade some unruly verses.

Disclosure's "Latch" has become an international hit from the duo's grammy nominated album Settle. The song has been brought back to life time & time again by a multitude of artists, and now none other than world renowned rapper Schoolboy Q delivers a brand new remix to the song. The combination of his flowful verses over towards the end of the deep house anthem is suprising yet manges to come together nicely. It would be cool to see the artists actually get in the studio and create something that sounded more natural and organic. Hear the first listen below and look out for a release soon, details getting updated as they come in.

The Life

StéLouse, a new alias of Denver, Colorado experimental electronic producer Ross Ryan, has taken the reigns of Viceroy and Penguin Prison's summer-time jam "The Life" and reproduces a stunning flip.  StéLouse evokes the same tropical vibes and tempo from the original even though he's stripped the guitar riff, synths, and horns from the creation. Adding a delightful combination of echoing, pitched down vocal samples with bouncing chimes and deep, quivering synths has brought a new round vibe to the track. Enjoy the exclusive premiere of the stream below and lookout to pick up your copy through iTunes September 23rd. Enjoy!
