Vast Aire And Cosmiq Give Fans A Taste Of The New LP

It takes a great deal of confidence to walk into the fold of a group like Canibal Ox, whose LP The Cold Vein stands as one of the most widely heralded pieces of New York City underground Hip-Hop. That wasn’t at all a problem for producer Cosmiq—formally known as Bill Cosmiq.

“I linked up with Vast Aire years ago through a mutual friend, Taj Hotep,” he told AAHH back in 2015. “The first track we released was Royal Purple Bag off of Vast’s A Space Iliad EP. After that, Can Ox and I continued to connect and work on some records.”

They then released the full-length effort Blade Of The Ronin—produced entirely by Cosmiq. “I let things come naturally, and the compositions started developing an intense cinematic edge,”’he said of LP’s tone.

Now—two years later—Vast Aire and Cosmiq are collaborating on a new LP, Aireplane, which will pair the two as a duo (à la Guru and Premier). As his team explained to AAHH, the project “balances cerebral concepts with witty and entertaining wordplay.”

The album is coming soon on the IGC Records imprint; in the meantime—to tide fans over—they’ve dropped the first single from the project, “Dark Metropolis,” a piano-driven heater, sprinkled that signature sound that Can Ox fans have come to hold so dear.

Check out the new track, below, and keep an eye out for the new LP—right here on AAHH.

As Dante Swave prepares for the release of his upcoming EP, Take Your Soul, the introspective rapper delivers the lead single to the project dubbed, “Vibes” produced by Shhbang Records.

 

According to Dante the song is about energy, self love and the idea of being alive: “The way you can catch a vibe is through energy, any feeling that makes you feel good in any sort of way. Aesthetics within your visionary perception. Meeting people you connect with, having fun, and being comfortable with yourself is how you catch a vibe. It all starts with self-love and loving the idea of being alive,” Dante explained.

 

After taking his high school by storm rapping a diss record at the school talent show, Dante Swave became inspired to pursue rap seriously speaking on real life situations and violence that he witnessed in New York as a youth.

 

I started rapping when I was 13 years old because of life situations that made me put a pen to paper like violence in the streets of NYC and common teen depression,” Dante Swave explained. “I made a diss track towards someone at my old high school in retaliation for making a song about me. I  performed it at a school talent show which made my whole school go crazy, making me realize this is what I wanted to do”

 

Rolling into the Summer, Dante Swave is prepping for his Take Your Soul EP and encourages everyone to live their best life.”Be yourself and live your best life, this world is like an alternate reality just play it the best way you can and have fun.”
