UK Hip-Hop rhymer, Jam Baxter, links up with Last Japan to create a grimey, swift-tongued, 134BPM duppiness entitled “Vulture”.
The High Focus Records (@HighFocusUK) artist is one to release more slower tempo, ‘rap-tracks’ such as “Saliva”, “For a Limited Time Only” or “Brains” – though all consistently containing an element of darkness within their sonics. This time, with the help of Last Japan, he shoots up the BPM and still shows out. Revealing skippy flows and tongue-tied rhyming patterns, alongside highlighting bars as dark as the production.
I told 'em 'Fuck your golden age' / 'Cause right now I circle them all like a brain dead vulture
OUAG frequent, Last Japan (@lastjapan), delves into an ‘Eski-inspiration’ to create a paranormal vibe that corresponds well with Baxter’s style. The visuals explore this ghostly pocket as well. With shots as enhanced as the production, the High Focus team, assisted by SpinCityVisuals, transport us to nightly scenes of Saigon and Vietnam.
This joint is taken from the artists upcoming album, Touching Scenes – due to drop on Nov 16th – which appears to be an unmissable project, with features from the likes of Rag'n'Bone Man, Kate Tempest, Stinkin Slumrok, OG Rootz FKA Durrty Goodz and Rhi. The two singles released – “Salvia” (prod. GhostTown) and “Vultures” – have been pressed on to limited edition 7” vinyl’s, 275 to be exact, with several hand-signed by Baxter. Available to purchase here, alongside his upcoming tour.
