A film about Northwest hip-hop from 2017
1990 x LUNA GOD
It seems like Luna God was everywhere this year, creating hella fun musical playgrounds and producing many of my favorite local hip-hop projects. That’s true here in this six-track collaboration with 1990. From the opening track, where a lush piano turns dark, to the marching anthem in “Take Control” that turns defiantly weird about two minutes in… The electro-funk of “Uncle Sam” falls away into a dreamy ocean of reverb, and the record ends with the deeply danceable “D4L,” there’s a lot of transformation going on. 1990. keeps pace throughout with inventive verses and wordplay, reminding us of the importance of belief, regardless of the haters and the government. This is one entertaining EP.
