Hunting for Red October? No need to sweep the inky depths with sonar—you’ve found it, right here in the Booth. Part of a forthcoming street album, Lewis‘s latest single finds him departing from the fast-paced bars and atmospheric beats of previous features to give his experimental side free rein. Over a minimal instrumental driven by a menacing, distorted synth-bassline, the Jersey representative switches between threatening, slow-flowed bars and wordless, Auto-tuned crooning. Divine provides vocal support. The finished product feels reminiscent of Kanye‘s more avant-garde material, as well as the grimy aural textures of Ibn Inglor. Lewis and Taylor King direct the joint’s equally outré visual accompaniment. If this cut’s piqued your interest, keep it locked to our front page for the latest on Black Autumn 1993, which currently lacks a solid drop date.
