Producer L’Orange & founding member of the Ultramagnetic MCs Kool Keith are two artists who live squarely in their own worlds, and those world colliding gave us the album Time? Astonishing! from earlier this year. One of the standout tracks from the album, “The Green Ray,” just received a video that fits the retro-futuristic vibe of the song, complete with stop-motion animation, hand-drawn aliens, and plenty of green.
Mello Music Group has been doing the most this year. The Arizona-based record label has been home to some of hip-hop’s most experimental and sonically rich entries – and some of the most beautiful vinyl you’re likely to see. Check out the video for “The Green Ray” above and check out Kool Keith’s recent appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last week below.
