In the Midst of the Digital Age, Goth Money's Latest Physical Release Refreshes Rap Game

Posted by The Bay Area Crew, November 30, 2015 07:31pm | Post a Comment

By Double Ay

Trillionaires is one of the hottest underground hip hop collectives to have a physical album in stores in 2015. In a digital era where a majority of up-and-coming hip-hop music is over-saturated with internet releases, Goth Money wanted to switch it up. Goth Money's new album, Trillionaires, was released with Break World Records on Halloween.

Trillonaires features members Sick Boy Rari (formerly known as Black Kray), MFK Marcy Mane, Hunned Mill, Karmah, Kane Grocerys, and Luckaleannn. With a deep roster, the album is full of unique flows and styles that come together for a dark, heavy, cohesive sound. Goth Money members have all been gaining buzz while working or touring with the likes of Yung Lean and Raider Klan affiliates Space Ghost Purrp and Ruben Slikk (FREESLIKK).

I got the chance to speak with Goth Money member Break World RecordsMFK Marcy Mane about Trillionaires, their involvement with Break World Records, and where they want to go with their music after this release. I asked Marcy Mane what made them decide to release a physical album when so much of hip-hop music in this day and age is internet based. He explained it has always been a dream and goal for Goth Money Records to release a physical project since the group came together.

Toro y Moi at Amoeba Berkeley

Toro y Moi is the electronic project of American producer and recording artist Chaz Bundick. In 2010, he released his first album, Causers of This, garnering comparisons to the newly-labeled chillwave genre. 2011's Underneath the Pine expanded on his sound, using all live instrumentation and no samples. The Freaking Out EP followed later that year. In December, Caribou invited Toro y Moi to perform at All Tomorrow's Parties.

Toro y Moi What ForIn 2013, Toro y Moi's third studio album, Anything in Return, was released via Carpark. The followup came in 2015, with the studio album What For? and a mixtape called Samantha. In early 2016, Toro y Moi is set to tour Australia and Japan.

Bundick visited Amoeba Berkeley recently to fill out his vinyl collection. He picked up LPs by Ravi Shankar, Elliott Smith, and Oscar Peterson. Watch the full What's In My Bag? episode below to see the rest of his picks and to find out when is his favorite time of day to listen to vinyl.

1) Public Enemy's latest, recommended (13th studio) album Man Plans God Laughs + the Chuck D led crew's hits collection Fight The Power: The Collection together as a two CD set make for the perfect introduction to one of the greatest acts in hip-hop history. I cannot recommend PE's latest album Man Plans God Laughs (also available in vinyl) enough. With incredible production ? Gary G Wiz and Carl Ryder (aka Chuck D) the new album manages to capture the PE vibe of old and blend it together on the new tracks on this five star album. Meanwhile the Fight The Power: The Collection  clocks in at one hour, ten minutes with 16 tracks featuring all the classics and more. Included are "Fight The Power," "Don't Believe The Hype," "Public Enemy No. 1," "Rebel Without A Pause," "Night Of The Living Baseheads," "Louder Than A Bomb," "Black Steel In The Hour Of Chaos," "Burn Hollywood Burn (feat. Ice Cube)," "By The Time I Get To Arizona" and "Can't Truss It." Regularly priced at $9.98 while the new CD released by SPITdigital is $13.98 = total of $23.96 but with Cyber Monday Amoeba discount = $19.17!
