Deep, The (Limited 12in Vinyl Single)
Not yet reviewed.
Experimental hip-hop group Clipping's "The Deep" is a dark sci-fi tale about the underwater-dwelling descendants of African women thrown off slave ships, based on the mythology of Detroit electronic group Drexciya.
The song was originally commissioned for a This American Life about Afrofuturism in 2017. The track earned Clipping a nomination for a 2018 Hugo award, and the band constructed a sound installation based on "The Deep" at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art.
This release comes on the heels of the November 5th release of The Deep, a novella by Rivers Solomon (with Clipping credited as co-authors) inspired by the title track and published by Saga Press.
The vinyl and digital versions include two otherwise-unreleased extra tracks – including "Aquacode Databreaks," which features Shabazz Palaces – and the vinyl edition includes instrumental versions of all three tracks.
