Vulkan the Krusader recently dropped his new EP “Robbie Darko” and I’ve been playing it a lot around the house and vibing heavy to it. It’s really dope trip hop, which isn’t what his other projects really sound like, and is good to sit back and puff too. His past two projects are more like straight up hip hop and the second “V for Vendetta” even featured the likes of Mr. Muthafuckin Exquire and A$AP Ferg, and is definitely progressive in it’s own right, but this new one has the feel like he put himself into a whole different mode. I actually talked to him recently and he said he wants to release it on cassette, which is a perfect fit to me, because Robbie Darko EP really feels like one of those tapes you just stumble upon at the record store and vibe out to without any preconceived opinion.
Robbie Darko EP is full of lo-fi sounds, vinyl hiss, static, and cool vocals that are totally left field of what he is used to doing and that is a bold step for an artist to do, especially a “rapper”. It worked out well for him though and he definitely ended up with a forward thinking great piece of music. My personal favorite tracks are the first three but the whole EP, which is 8 tracks, is really solid and easy to listen through in one sitting. He also has a new tape coming soon called VX-13 so be on the lookout for that and plenty more from him in the future I’m sure. Vulkan the Krusader is definitely a talented guy worth following.
