Clipping 'The Deep' 12"
Experimental hip hop group Clipping’s ‘The Deep’ is a dark sci-fi tale about the underwater-dwelling descendants of African women thrown off slave ships, based on the mythology of Detroit electronic group Drexciya. The song was originally commissioned for a This American Life about Afrofuturism in 2017. The track earned Clipping a nomination for a 2018 Hugo award, and the band constructed a sound installation based on ‘The Deep’ at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art.
This 12” comes on the heels of the release of ‘The Deep’, a novella by Rivers Solomon (with Clipping credited as co-authors) inspired by the title track and published by Saga Press.
Features two otherwise-unreleased extra tracks, including ‘Aquacode Databreaks’ with Shabazz Palaces, plus instrumental versions of all three tracks.
Includes digital download code.
