Berlin label Project: Mooncircle, drops KRTS's second full-length LP, Close Eyes to Exit !Inspired by recent world events, each of the albumï¿½s 12 tracks dwell upon the world we live in now, a world struggling to rid itself of corruption, hate, bigotry, and ignorance. The resulting record is equal parts raw, emotional, dense, and danceable. This is KRTS at his creative peak.
ï¿½White Privilegeï¿½ is a perfect example. Elegant melodies and a speedy jungle beat will have you bopping your head without a care in the world.
ï¿½My Head is Jumpinï¿½ï¿½ features Charles Larson and Tito Ramsey of the Brooklyn-based indie-pop act, Legs. The track is a biting meditation on our internal struggles and the many different bodies that encase them. How do we process the hurt, the pain, and the unreal? How do we manage these feelings living inside of us?
ï¿½Serve and Protectï¿½ features Sacramento MC Mad Flows. It speaks to the mediaï¿½s portrayal of death in the black community as an unjustly ï¿½normalï¿½ occurrence. Mad Flows spits out fear, rage, and lossï¿½a direct response to the policing of America.
