Since the release of “Girl” earlier this year, a collab between Canadian producer KAYTRANADA and The Internet, the group has been on the radar of many, especially with their upcoming project, Ego Death scheduled for release on the June 30th. Personally I didn’t know much about The Internet (ironic?), but listening to “Girl” got me wonrdering, and after some research the music quality started to make sense. It turns out that The Internet actually consists of former Odd Future (the now defunct Odd Future) members Syd The Kyd and Matt Martians, as well as touring members Jameel Bruner, Patrick Paige, Christopher A. Smith, and Steve Lacy. Ego Death is the bands 3rd album together.
Today we get a new leak (more about that after), featuring another young buzzing artist, Vic Mensa. “Go With It”. The track, reminiscent of the vibes on “Girl”, starts with a smooth versa from Mensa, leading into a couple smooth hooks and verse from Syd The Kyd. Her voice is one thing that really surprised me on this project; It’s a lot more smooth and sensual on many tracks than I would’ve been able to pin-point.
Stream the new track below, and if you dig it go listen to the new project, Ego Death in its entirety over on Viperial, and the support the band by pre-ordering the album on iTunes before it’s official Tuesday drop date. I just listened to the project, and I have to say it has been one of my favourites of the year so far to listen to. Happy Weekend Fam-o!
