SpaceGhostPurrp, Miami’s prodigal gloom-monger, has another new EP on the way.
SGP’s signature sound – a brutish, groggy revamp of classic Southern horrorcore – really hit paydirt on this year’s mesmerising God Of Black mixtape. 4AD debut Mysterious Phonk, meanwhile, offered a comparatively polished overview of his canon to date. SpaceGhostPurrp is set to return next month with the N.A.S.A Tape, Vol. 2, the follow-up to last year’s NASA Underground Lost Tapes 1994 – 1996 tape (later reissued in remastered form as N.A.S.A Phonk 1996).
‘Still Stickin” is the first taste from the tape, and, as you might guess from the title, it’s cast in the same dead-eyed sex jam mould as ‘Suck A Dick 2012’. Artistically, that title’s also a statement of intent: SpaceGhostPurrp isn’t switching up his trademark sound any time soon. From those campfire round cadences through to those familiar idents, he continues to furiously plough the same jet-black furrow. For now, his sound remains beguiling – but if SpaceGhostPurrp really wants to codify his legend status, he might want to consider twisting before too long.
N.A.S.A Tape, Vol. 2 is due out October 31.
