Video: Art Melody 'FUTUR' ft. High Priest

Watch a found-footage clip for African hip-hop artist Art Melody's dark "FUTUR" featuring Antipop Consortium's High Priest.


The beat to Burkinabé rapper Art Melody's "FUTUR" plays like a night-drive through a dystopian highway with its repeating static phrases, hypnotizing progression and generally ominous texture. The track, produced by previous collaborator Red Rum and Minimalkonstruction, kicks off with a verse from early 00's hip-hop/electronica group Antipop Consortium's High Priest and is followed by a typically hoarse-throated verse from Art Melody. The track will feature in AM's upcoming Wogdog Blues, out in March from Akwaaba. Watch the found-footage video for "FUTUR" below, edited by Jeremie Lenoir.
