From the digital desk of Anthony Miguel & DK Thundah:
“A long time coming, The Youngest Child is a collaboration effort between Anthony Miguel and DK Thundah. They began working on the EP Summer 2020 while in quarantine. Each song was written and produced by both Ant and DK with the help of Grampa Mane on L O W. The EP has themes of growth, determination, vulnerability, the softer side of masculinity, and relationship dynamics.”

Despite 2020 being a stagnant or regressive year for many creatives, a small handful were able to make quick adjustments and continue to thrive, if not exceed expectations. A perfect example of this is the formidable Protextor, who not only continued to record music, but managed to incubate and create a handful of larger scale productions. One that brought attention to his sphere was the UltraLoop-based Twitch stream You Are in a Video Store, a weekly series hosted by Protextor and his cohost Stephanie where the two talk about a wide range of films. After a successful run, including a few streaming awards, Protextor decided to up the ante by creating a theme song for his streaming show. With the help of producer DK Thundah, who made a wonderfully epic beat that sounds like soundtrack fodder, Protextor flexes his film knowledge in rap form while giving viewers an idea of what they are in for when they tune in to the streams. Dig this sonic slice of wonderful, and if it moves you, then definitely tune in to UltraLoop‘s Twitch channel on Tuesday nights for You Are in a Video Store.
DK Thundah of Yngldy is one of those ‘eat, breath and sleep music’ cats, meaning that his sonic creations come fast and furious. Recently, he did a quick promo run for Eldritch, a futuristic sounding single featuring DK Thundah‘s mixture of swaggy bars and raw, cloud-rap influenced singing. The song sounds like the kind of track you’d hear opening up a movie, TV show or video game, and I love that about it. Check this one out on your favorite streaming service or digital storefront, and don’t sleep on the magic of DK Thundah.
My discovery of YNGLDY has been a fruitful one for sure, as it introduced me to producer DK Thundah and his creative world. Recently, he hooked up with Light Feather for Better Way, a moving mood-setter of a single that combines dream-pop and cloud rap nearly perfectly. Light Feather‘s vocals and lyrics are chill-inducing, and DK Thundah not only produced an extremely strong background track, but added a very solid guest verse as well. DK Thundah even took to the internet later to provide a breakdown of how he created the background track :
