Shintendo64, the artist formerly known as Shonen Domo, has come out to share a collection of songs to whet listeners’ appetites as he prepares his next formal mixtape, The Terra God. TERRABYTZ is a mix of in-house and industry beats made with the dudes in the TERRA 5 COLLECTIVE. It’s been awhile since Shintendo64 was on Ruby Hornet, but the wait was definitely well worth it.
Through my first listen of TERRABYTZ, I was reminded of vintage MF DOOM with the samples of old cartoons scattered through a few tracks (ex: “Undefeated School of the East”). “Hold the Microphone” also reminded me a bit of Binary Star’s “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings,” so anything that reminds me of the late ’90s group is always a good thing in my book.
