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 :

Austin is weird, no doubt, and for the most part that weirdness has been captured across the city’s musical spectrum. Hip-hop in the city, for the most part, is a relatively serious venture, where even the funny MCs and groups still have a certain level of gravitas that they carry themselves with, as to be taken seriously regardless of lyrical cleverness. It seems that Yngldy, unlike these other groups, could give less than a damn about coming off as serious, and yet Final Bout lacks none of the lyrical weight or sharpness of their contemporaries. The video is a sight to see, for sure, and the song will stick in your head long after the final frames have faded away. This Austin trio has definitely just hit my radar in a major way, and I’ll be keeping an eye and an ear out for what’s next.
