Ex Mykah is about to put out his debut album, and here's the first single: a lushly produced—maybe even to the point of adjectives like "narcotic"—hip-hop-gone-abstract song that's bristling with strange and anxious energy in everything from its rhythm to its melody. That's exactly the point, too, according to Ex Mykah: the song is "about falling into a vortex of sex and drugs [and] losing your mind," prelude to an album used to examine the grimmest aspects of modern life. (Specifically: "Social class, broken economic systems, drug abuse, and moral decline.') Ex Mykah's full-length will be out later this year on Kowloon Records (also home of Cocaine Kisses) and you can visit Ex Mykah here." /> L.A. Record

L.A.-based sessioneer and polymath Ex Mykah is about to put out his debut album, and here’s the first single: a lushly produced—maybe even to the point of adjectives like “narcotic”—hip-hop-gone-abstract song that’s bristling with strange and anxious energy in everything from its rhythm to its melody. That’s exactly the point, too, according to Ex Mykah: the song is “about falling into a vortex of sex and drugs [and] losing your mind,” prelude to an album used to examine the grimmest aspects of modern life. (Specifically: “Social class, broken economic systems, drug abuse, and moral decline.’) Ex Mykah’s full-length will be out later this year on Kowloon Records (also home of Cocaine Kisses) and you can visit Ex Mykah here.
