London rapper Jadasea continues to put out solid work. The artist has been collaborating with King Krule (under his Edgar The Beatmaker monicker) for well over five years now as part of their Sub Luna City collective, releasing stellar yet criminally under-the-radar projects like City Rivims Mk 1. They returned with the five-track half-life EP back in November 2019 that took Archy Marshall’s signature, murky instrumentation with pensive bars from Jadasea.
Yesterday the duo returned with “Deep End,” a new single accompanied by a music video directed by Reuben Bastienne Lewis. The collaboration follows Jadasea’s feature on MIKE’s “Regrets” visual captured during a trip overseas. On the record, Jadasea plots and prods to find the right words with the end product sounding more like a candid reference track than a finished product. He takes abrupt pauses to find his breath and the repetition, paired with Marshall’s production, creates a dreamy sonic quality full of stream-of-consciousness searching.
Watch the visual for the new track above and revisit half-life below. In more music updates, listen to MIKE’s new project Weight of the World.
