From Stephen Bolles:
Philadelphia's Lushlife has always thrived on pushing listeners' buttons when it comes to their perceptions of what hip-hop can be. Whether it's building a boom-bap rap track out of hyper chopped samples of lo-fi indie songwriter Ariel Pink, incorporating instruments like mandolin and live horns into his stage show, or soliciting remixes from psychedelic pop artists, it's clear that Lushlife has an all-encompassing view of hip-hop that he wants to impress on the world. With his latest leak, the emcee/producer repurposes a track from Georgia glo-fi outfit Washed Out, transporting the track's beach side vibe to the street corner, & improbably conjuring images of Nas rapping over the 80's synth heavy "Wild Style" soundtrack.
Don't miss Lushlife's performance at this year's SXSW, performing as a part of Favorite Gentlemen's eclectic showcase. Details & RVSP info below. The Cassette City album and Leisure Class / Stick Up Kids remix project are out now on Rapster.
