The way that the internet has made our massive world figuratively ‘smaller’ has allowed for collaborative possibilities that, even a generation ago, could not have existed. The story of the EXOCIETY collective perfectly illustrates this, as the ultra-talented Austin-based MC known as Scuare has shown us. About a decade ago, he connected with non-Texans Rav and Kill Bill over the website Newgrounds, and a bond was formed that has lasted despite proximity and time. With each member growing and the world changing drastically since their inception, it makes sense that SKIN would reflect this range of change, despite it’s semi-short runtime. Each member provides production, along with fellow collaborator Gold Midas, on the project, which takes a deep dive into the realms of creativity and sonic exploration. I could throw a bunch of adjectives around, but this one deserves a direct listen, as it is quite gripping. Check it out on Bandcamp or your favorite streaming service, and spread it around for others to do the same.
