The end of July may be a bit late for some to find a new summer jam, but in a world where artists continue to churn out indulgent slices of hazy pop and hip-hop jams, it’s really never too late. Case in point: this juicy track titled “Violet Sky,” a collaboration between Declaime and Aloe Blacc. Stream its world premiere below via SoundCloud.
Due out August 18 via SomeOthaShip Connect/One Music, Declaime’s new album Young Spirit balances the California rapper’s unique rapping delivery over psychedelic funk and jazz-laden production by Georgia Anne Muldrow and Madlib. His upcoming full-length also includes guest features from Saul Williams, Aloe Blacc, and more.
Press play above and get instantly transported to a Southern California highway in a drop top convertible with Declaime and Aloe Blacc’s smooth bars and bouncy, sunny production courtesy of Georgia Anne Muldrow. Or purchase the track right here.
