Martin, the charismatic rapper from Altadena, CA, releases jazzy, carefree single “Clouded”. The 20 year old artist spits crafty flows and a catchy hook belting “now I’m feelin’ clouded lookin’ up to the sky,” creating the perfect song for a long plane ride or for rollin’ up a blunt. The track, produced by Los Angeles-based producer SpydaWebs, takes inspiration from classic boom-bap artists like A Tribe Called Quest, while adding smooth keyboards and a harmon mute trumpet over the hook. Original animation depicting a love story between Cloud and Fiona, two characters in Martin’s alternative hip-hop universe, accompanies the song in a visualizer produced by Marcus Burke of BZL Productions. Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump.
“Clouded” is the fourth episode of Martin’s alternative hip-hop universe. The animated visualizer showcases Fiona, a female mouse, dreaming of her crush Cloud, the main character of Martin’s universe. With a new song and animated visualizer to complement each song scheduled to release every other Wednesday, Martin’s releases are episodic, following the narrative of this unique ensemble of animated characters.
