In case you were a little bit too busy this weekend to keep up with the movements of mystery beings, here is Captain Murphy‘s debut mixtape Duality, which dropped some time last night (18th November).
Whilst I haven’t yet had the time to listen to the thing or ascertain who the hell the enigmatic rapper really is, Internet music nerds are whispering a bunch of names. Some suggest that Captain Murphy might be Flying Lotus. FlyLo’s Brainfeeder label-mates Jeremiah Jae and Azizi Gibson both appear as guests on the tape, and it was the LA beatmaker who originally introduced us to Captain Murphy on his Earl Sweatshirt collaboration “Between Friends“. Others whisper into the darkness the names Dangermouse, Madvillain and Tyler .
Well I say this, stop whispering and just listen to Duality, which is available for streaming (complete with trippy visuals) now via Captain Murphy’s site. According to the Captain, beats come courtesy of a wide range of producers, including FlyLo, Madlib, Clams Casino, TNGHT, Just Blaze, Jeremiah Jae, Teebs and Samiyam, so it should be an interesting listen.
