Ultra_eko – ‘Crows Call’

  • 2 min read

In the past few weeks, Ultra_eko has been a man possessed, dishing out new releases, bold plans, and progressive rap anthems like no one else possibly could. The inventive rapper and cofounder of Underside Entertainment has never been one to sit idle, but recently he’s taking things up a level, pushing boundaries with titanic cuts like ‘Win Big’, news of his debut feature film, and today, the god-like single ‘Crows Call’.

Taken from his upcoming record, ‘Light Work’, which is set for release on the 1st of May this year, ‘Crows Call’ is Ultra_eko taking flight, carving out an industrial arc that blends perfectly with his old school grime style. Released just a few weeks after the triumphant ‘Big Win’, the new single sees Ultra_eko perfectly backing up the colliding beats and pulsating rhythms, stitching together a bass-driven anthem that shines through stoic industrial sounds, mechanical rhythms, a deep dose of wonder. It’s a track where Ultra_eko lets loose and pushes himself to the limit, delivering some career-defining bars, and setting a high standard for the full album.

Alongside the single, Ultra_eko also gave us a glimpse into his new record, ‘Light Work’, which is set for release on the 1st of May this year. Speaking candidly about the album’, Ultra_eko explained that he mysteriously disappeared into a homemade wormhole, entering a localised tear in the space-time continuum that occurred in the back of his Uncle Bish’s Transit van, following one too many plant-based shamanic journeys. Stuck within the tear, he contemplated and created, piecing together new tracks and looking for his way home. While the multi-genre South London artist has since found his way, bringing with him the new album, some questions still remain, in particular of his authenticity.

A distant relative has claimed that the returning Ultra_eko is a variant from a parallel universe, a fact patently obvious from the different underarm deodorant this version prefers. Nevertheless, he appears to be a close enough approximation for his Face ID to work on his iPhone, and he has brought back with him his trusted companion, the AI, Subsequel, who has remixed some of his more recent tracks.

You can stream the new single above, and make sure you keep your eyes and ears peeled for the album’s full release on the 1st of May this year.
