Hailing from Kelantan, the torrential floods across the east coast have hit VMPRMYTH close to home, and this mixtape is his way of raising awareness regarding the situation (where evacuees have totalled over 120,000 in the past few weeks). It starts off on a melancholic note with keys and pipes courtesy of Pan Am and Culprate, before slipping into territory that we’re used to seeing VMPRMYTH get down and dirty with. The whole tape spans multifarious genres, from protojazz to glitch and chillwave, so if you’re in an exploratory mood, this one ought to do the trick for you.
