The Butterfly Effect

The clouds overhead have cleared, as an indefinite question has been answered today. Clockwork Indigo The Electric Koolade Experience, what was believed to be the title of Flatbush Zombies and The Underachievers upcoming tour, is much more than just a label for the drug induced escapade covering 37 dates. It's now confirmed that Clockwork Indigo is indeed the name of the supergroup consisting of Brooklyn rap groups Flatbush Zombies, and The Underachievers. They bring us a track under the title of "Butterfly Effect", seven minutes of pure rap atop a slowed down, grimy, orchestral loop. All five Beast Coast members hop on the track to spit bars, all while Erick Arc Elliot handles production, both vinyl crackle and Carl Sagan sample included. Cali bud smoke aloft and references to the Beast Coast and Indigo lifestyle, the track fades out with samples "It's my belief" and "It seems madness to say."

A Clockwork Indigo

This is not a sequel to an Anthony Burgess book, nor is it going to revive the Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, this is simply an announcement to inform you that the Beast Coast is about to take over. Flatbush Zombies are teaming up with The Underachievers to embark on their North-American tour, titled "Clockwork Indigo Presents the Electric Koolade Experience." The tour begins October 17 in Iowa City, IA and concludes in Philadelphia, PA on December 7. Flatbush Zombies released a handful of singles throughout the year via their "Day of the Dead" series, while The Underachievers released an entire LP earlier this month, which very well could come together for quite a phenomenal setlist. There's also the possibility that this really is a supergroup and they'll be bringing out all new tracks in full force. Either way, do not miss out on this tour Grab your tickets here.

With the recent release of The Underachievers' Cellar Door: Terminus Ut Exordium LP (stream the album in its entirety here), it's obvious the Beast Coast is rising in power regardless if Issa Gold may do his own thing. Sure it may be an obscure name for an album, but The Cellar Door is apparently one of the most phonetically beautiful phrases in the English language. The album returns to the psychedelic waves similar to that of their first mixtape, Indigoism. Even in the opening track, "Luminescence," The Underachievers' transcendental lyrics immediately create a distinct line that sets them apart. It's the spiritualism they rap about, following their own beliefs as they exploit the faults of our society one verse at a time. This track leads into a colossal album that must definitely be checked out, open your third eye and purchase the album here or listen to a full stream here.
