The New York rapper announced the release of Disco! on vinyl with a new video created by FINDJORDY and Evan Cahill whilst he was in Ireland.
Last year, MIKE shared one of our favourite albums in Disco!. Following its release he headed out on a European tour which included a date in Dublin. He linked up with FINDJORDY and Evan Cahill for the video to standout track ‘alarmed!’ featuring Sideshow, which was shot outside Bohemians’ stadium back in June.
The video sees the pair trading verses outside the turnstiles, with shots of Dublin buses and the surrounding area slicing between portraits and wider images.
MIKE rose to prominence as one of the frontrunners in the increasingly fertile abstract rap scene with affiliated acts such as Earl Sweatshirt and Navy Blue, whilst artists closer to home like Curtisy have taken the sound in new and exciting directions.
FINDJORDY’s stock has been rising in Dublin with a film showcase under his belt and visual collaborations on content with the likes of Rejjie Snow.
MIKE’s run of vinyl is available from his label’s store for $35 excluding shipping. Click here to purchase.
