As if to flip the entire internet music scene over, two of the most hyped about sensations in the realm of the blogosphere, TNGHT and Captain Murphy, have teamed up to release “Shake Weight” which is Captain Murphy’s song put over TNGHT’s “Bugg’n.”Captain Murphy being the enigmatic rapper firstly featured on Flying Lotus’ contribution to the 2012 Adult Swim Singles program with Earl Sweatshirt and TNGHT being the duo of UK instrumental wizards Hudson Mohawke and Lunice.
These two acts are amazingly popular in their own realms: TNGHT’s self-titled EP has been melting people’s brains for a few weeks now in the hip-hop instrumental/electronic field and people have been searching all over the internet to try and find out who Captain Murphy is, comparing his style to a mix of Tyler the Creator and MF Doom, but slathered in pitch-bent blackness.
The beat from TNGHT isn’t new material since it was on their self-titled EP, but it’s still great to hear it used in another context, especially under Murphy’s distorted, spooky flow. Speaking of Murphy, the rapping is great, per usual. My favorite song from him is still “Mighty Morphin Foreskin” which I’ll post below as well as this song.
Hopefully this will lead us to the identity of this mysterious figure, but if not I don’t care, I just want him to keep putting out music. The download to both of these songs are in the youtube video description.
Have a great day!
