This is the instrumental for my contribution to Le1f’s mixtape Dark York earlier this year. A few people were asking me for it and so I thought I’d make it available. Â It’s 128bpm so a bit slower than a lot of the ‘trap’ music popping on the net right now. Â My homie Dead O from clouds gave me a huge stack of underground Memphis rap CDs several years ago when I played in Helsinki with him and the hypnotic darkness really made an impact. Â This is my love letter to those beats. Â A big shoutout to Le1f for using it for his tape, as a lifelong New York Rap Guy I’m happy to be included in this new generation of weird rap that’s oozing out of NY right now. Â I’m calling the genre for this one Emotional Grease.
