Video: LV ft. Okmalumkoolkat 'Spitting Cobra'

[embed width="600"][/embed]


"Spitting Cobra" kicks off like a wavy cyberspace ballad, packed with Okmalumkoolkat's loosely-spit mentions of mpegs, jpegs, twitter avatars, et al. The dripping synth clicks unassumingly build to a straight head nodder by the end, when London producers LV drop a deep bass groove. The Chris Saunders and Malcom Chen directed black-and-white music video for the track is a simple collage of Okmalulkoolkat spitting in front of backyard palm trees and brick walls. Watch above and lookout LV's Sebenza LP due early September from Hyperdub.

In his new single, J Molley expands his scope as he collaborates with artists one wouldn't have predicted. Yanga Chief and Costa Titch spread their sauce on "Ang'na Stress", rapping and singing mostly in South African indigenous languages IsiZulu and IsiXhosa alongside J Molley's English raps.
