Ras G Teases Forthcoming LP for Brainfeeder with New Track
- Words: Patric Fallon
Easily one of LA's most out there beatmakers, Ras G has maintained a steady schedule of dropping tapes and other short-form releases over the years, but a proper album hasn't surfaced from the prolific artist since 2011. Today, however, Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder label teased the next LP from the producer born Gregory Shorter, Jr. with a stream of one of its tracks. Back on the Planet (artwork above) is the title of Ras G & The Afrikan Space Program's upcoming album, the August 13 release of which is preceded by the hypnotic "All is Well..." cut. As we've come to expect from Shorter's handiwork, his latest tune meditates on a few spectral loops for most of its duration, as a few psychedelic melodies and heavy bass tones weave in and out of the groove. The whole thing can be heard before Ras G & The Afrikan Space Program's Back on the Planet drops next month.
