Video: Kingdom Crumbs – Evoking Spirits

For the first 20 seconds of ‘Evoking Spirits’ I was convinced that Kingdom Crumbs was just another bedroom producer making electronic music akin to 2009 era chillwave.  Then the vocals kick in sounding like some mystic MC over the cosmic plane of warped synths and warm bass.  We are used to cloud rap, but this stuff is like astral gas giant hip-hop.  ‘Evoking Spirits’ is my first introduction to the experimental hip-hop quartet that is Kingdom Crumbs and the Shabazz Palaces indebted style is really winning me over.  They just dropped their debut self-titled mixtape which everyone can (and should) download for the cheaps over at their bandcamp.  If you like your hip-hop experimental with a side of high-as-kite production (and visuals in the case of this video for ‘Evoking Spirit’) Kingdom Crumbs is your cup of tea.
