Image: 1601747 Pyramid Vritra presents the next generation of hip hop with Dãnu
(NRK / The Order Label). Former half of Odd Future duo The Jet
Age of Tomorrow and a member of the up-and-coming NRK
collective, the rapper and producer is an inventive storyteller whose
sound ignites the brain. Like the artist’s namesake god, the album
manifests itself into many incarnations. Lyrics are effortlessly fluid
and tracks change directions quickly, flipping from one personality to
another without pause.
Title track “Dãnu” edges the album open, slowly warming from
its leisurely beginning and sidling into a stone-skipping jam.
“58 (Heavy)” evolves with exquisite musical form, riveted by an
unexpected cadence that dips just low enough to scoop up the
wayward contemplation.
Starting with a simple combination of clean rap and smooth beats,
“Leather” plunges into polychromatic sound. Bursts of sunlight beam
through as the track sways and mutates. “Parcel” is the work of a
hypnotist – a beyond-heady brew filled with the thickest smoke, an
exotic den of serpentine arms that beckons you come hither.
Sample-free and crafted with cohesive design, Dãnu is an experiment
created with the free-floating forms of the mind.
