The album is set to release on November 17th and we've already gotten our hands on the first two singles. Today we get the latest with the new track "Scylla".

Djemba Djemba is a pivotal figure in the incredible Los Angeles beatmaker scene having come through the ranks of the Team Supreme collective and catching the attention of Mad Decent label head Diplo. His experimental touch has found its way to fellow colleague RL Grime's recent single "Core" and inspired Djemba to flip the hell out of the beat. Speeding up the tempo and adding Selassie chants as the beat builds, Djemba crushes the initial drop with enhanced trap aesthetics before slowing the pace down and adding some block chops as the originals screeching air horn dissipates the acoustics. Djemba is generous enough to hand his bootleg remix out as a free download and we urge you to add this to your growing music library now! Enjoy

The albums debut track, "Core", features a relentless bass heavy beat full of middle eastern influence via an eerie synth pattern, 808 knocks, and an overall cinematic flavor you can't deny. The song comes complete with an edgy music video depicted in animated form as a trio of kittled out Apache helicopters partake in combat with an unknown, nuclear force. Going back to the album, we know RL Grime has been in and out of the studio with rapper Big Sean and reputable producer Noah Breakfast, and we can say for certain that the electronic music world will be turned upside down when his debut album is delivered in full later this year.
