Boys Noize and Chilly Gonzales collaborate with Chance the Rapper
With each successive track, the scope of Boys Noize and Chilly Gonzales’ project Octave Minds becomes more evident. From distorted 4×4 rhythms to ambient masterpieces, their forthcoming album is looking to be more diverse than we could have ever imagined. Now the brilliant heads behind Octave Minds have surprised us once again by collaborating with one of the most innovative hip hop artists of the moment, Chance the Rapper.
As if there wasn’t already enough oddity behind the highly unlikely crossover collaboration, the song is written in a 6/8 time signature, giving it a classical feel and making the composition all the more interesting. Adding to the live feel of the track, Chance’s band The Social Experiment is on hand to spice up the track with jazzy instrumentation.
With brilliant contributions from all parties on hand, this is undoubtedly a collaboration for the ages. What else do Octave Minds have up their sleeves? We’ll have to wait till September 15th to find out.
