Video: Ssaliva "Mental Ray"
- Words: Patric Fallon
Though we're still having a fine time losing ourselves inside the squishy analog warmth and hypnotic tape delay of the RZA EP by Belgian producer Ssaliva, we're more than pleased to take in any new music from the prolific artist, too. Here, we have a video for the track "Mental Ray," which is apparently from the forthcoming Sextape Hiss record that the tunesmith's own label, Surf Kill, will release this year. The video piece itself is somewhat nondescript, displaying little more than bits of VHS tracking fuzz and muted color, but the music has an oddly smooth groove that recalls Ssaliva's Thought Has Wings cassette for Leaving Records. As it turns out, another new Ssaliva track appeared recently on SoundCloud, too. You can stream "EZA" below.
