Camp Lo’s Geechi Suede Is Sent From The Past To Show Us The Future (Video)
Camp Lo’s Geechi Suede has consistently rocked innovative, intricate and sparingly abstract rhyme schemes since “Coolie High,” and solo build-out “Sound of View” is no exception. Spacey synths and uptempo break-beat-backed drums provide a fitting ambience for the Bronx lyricist to showcase his “retro-futuristic” style—managing to pull off avant-garde with a hint of nostalgia in the same breath. The trippy visuals are reminiscent of ’60s pyschedelia, but modernized for the 21st century. Furthermore, with Suede appearing somewhat like “Max Headroom,” the iconic computer-generated TV host from the ’80s, the video complements the song in that it almost provides a glimpse of the future, as imagined in the past.
“Sound of View” is featured on Suede’s upcoming 0.9 NyteLife FM collaborative album with producers Sal GuoD ’n’ ReXxX of NyteLife, set to release this Friday (December 2).
