Mykki Blanco Feat. Jean Deaux – Loner (Video)

Categories VIDEOPosted on

Against-the-grain artist Mykki Blanco is back with a new visual for ‘Loner’, which features Jean Deaux and is taken from the new album Mykki. The clip — which seems to be a sensual lesson in virtual reality — was created by Pornhub, a shocking revelation given that there’s no actual porn in the video (seriously, you can watch this one at work, guys).

Enjoy above.

This Friday will see the release of Mykki Blanco’s official debut album Mykki. Before that drop, we get to check out the new track ‘My Nene’, which was premiered via Zane Lowe on Apple Music’s Beats 1…the track features assistance from Woodkid.

Mykki also explained the single to The FADER:

‘My Nene’ is one of those songs where I get to play with gender roles. As a queer artist, sometimes on a certain song I on purpose want to play with universal things… ‘My Nene’ is one of those songs where I’m using words that could be applied affectionately to a man or a woman, and I’m doing it on purpose.’

Check out ‘My Nene’ below and pre-order Mykki here.

Future has been killing stages left and right during a recent European tour, and — while visiting France — the Atlanta emcee sat down with Clique TV for a pretty dope interview.

Mykki Blanco is back with a new visual for ‘Coke White, Starlight’, which sees “the artist [get] drugged up, [stab] an octopus and [swim] through the oceans of Greece in her wildest video to date”. We really couldn’t have described what you’re about to see any better.

The track is taken from Blanco’s compilation project C-ORE, which serves as an introduction of sorts for Dogfood Music Group artists Yves Tumor, Violence and PsychoEgyptian.

Etnik Feat. Mykki Blanco – Unclassified (Rusko Remix)

Categories ELECTRONIC, MUSICPosted on

Bass god Rusko was (we’re guessing) selected by Etnik to create a remix of his track ‘Unclassified’ with Mykki Blanco, and the results are (as we expected) awesome. It’s not as active; Rusko’s version definitely gives off a more ambient vibe than the original.

The below remix will appear alongside others by Wiwek and Wax Motif (as well as a ‘night version’, and Culprate remix of ‘N7’) in the forthcoming EP, released 9th April (preorder on iTunes). The original Unclassified EP can be found here.
