While Run DMT sometimes calls Baltimore home and collaborates often with folks from around these parts, describing his presence as more a vagabond is probably more accurate. Lately his music has hinted at a new direction to drift, with recent tracks like "Spruce Bringstein".
Run DMT now has a release due out on the infamous Woodsist, and a brand new track on their recently dropped compilation gives us a bit of a preview. His song is the second track on Welcome Home Diggin' The Universe, and it's called "Richard".
"Richard" pulls the atmospheric tones and psychedelic whirls from Run DMT's earlier sound collage works, and blends them into a pop song. The result is as good it sounds described, calling to mind some of the finer sample-driven bedroom artists of late - Panda Bear, Happy Family, Atlas Sound, etc.
The rest of Woodsist's new compilaton is pretty splendid as well, and I highly suggest snagging one of these while you still can. Grab it via cassette or vinyl right here.
