From South Central, California, Vortx Of Distorsun present their debut Children Of The Sun. A pretty mysterious release. I was passed a copy of it by a friend not long ago with nothing else but a solid recommendation. Not much information is found on the back cover, and it seems not much opinion of it exists online either.
The video depicts a child going through many phases in life and his love for art. He confides in his book where he writes and sketches constantly. A form of expressive art. As he grows, he is picked on, bullied by other teens. These are important stages in his life that craft him into the person he becomes eventually. Once he matures he deals with responsibilities (ie. bills, loans, etc.) He reminisces about the past events, constantly contemplating about the dark phases he went through to get to the point in life where he is at now. (The alleys represent this) He realizes that the countless times he spent expressing himself through art and creativity - Has made him more optimistic in life, appreciating every struggle that he experienced. (The field represents this) Eventually, he found Hope through his struggles.
On the heels of both their extolled remix for Lana Del Rey's "Born To Die" and pastiched visual presentation of "Mr. Rogers" Neighborhood, emcee/producer duo Kyle Rapps & Diwon continue their repertoire of dementing TV show samples into a gritty Boom-Trap aesthetic, with their Breaking Bad inspired video of the same title. Donning the show's trademark Hazmat suit and safety goggles, Rapps takes on the role of a swagged out Walter White. "Breaking Bad" is just one of the many TV themed sample flips that you'll find on their forthcoming, duly titled mixtape, Syndication. Set to be released on October 17th, Syndication falls on the day that the duo is performing as part of a Scion sponsored CMJ showcase at The Paperbox (Brooklyn, NYC).
