Premiered courtesy of W Magazine, Mykki Blanco delivers a powerful new visual for ‘Hideway’, taken from last year’s debut album Mykki. In the Daisy Zhou-directed clip, the spotlight is cast on the impact of HIV in relationships (done in lieu of National Youth HIV/AIDS Awareness Day).
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).
So much great music this weekend. Here’s another one we missed: the release of Mykki Blanco’s new album, which features the Woodkid-assisted ‘Highschool Never Ends’ and ‘Loner’, of which the visual for the latter is added below. Stream/download via Apple Music/iTunes.
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.
‘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 Mykkihere.
Mykki Blanco is gearing up for the release for his album Mykki, which drops 16th September via !K7 and sees appearances/production from Jean Deaux, Woodkid and Jeremiah Meece.

This year’s VISIONS Festival has announced the first wave of their 2016 line-up: among them, Young Fathers, Mykki Blanco, Gengahr, The Japanese House, Show Me The Body, Elf Kid and more.
It all takes place Saturday, 6th August and will feature street food and a craft beer festival (within its festival) across 6 venues in Hackney. You can get more information on said venues and pick up your tickets via VISIONS official website.
This year’s Rewire Festival was already hype with it’s initial line-up — Ben UFO, Animal Collective, Battles and more — and has recently added the likes of Mykki Blanco, Gazelle Twin: Kingdom Come and Factory Floor to the list. We’ve included what’s current above.
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. During the sit-down, Future spoke on growing up in his hometown, drug use in his music (and in real life), what to expect in 2016 (NOTE: he just dropped a mixtape) and more.
BONUS: As we were checking out Future’s interview, we also came across Clique TV’s sit-down with Mykki Blanco. You can enjoy that below.
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.
In celebration of Pride, rapper Mykki Blanco has revealed his own truth: that he’s has been HIV Positive since 2011…he brought this out via his Facebook in an attempt to ease the stigma of having such a diagnosis.
Ive been HIV Positive since 2011, my entire career. fuck stigma and hiding in the dark, this is my real life. I'm…
He followed this message with an equality powerful quote — “no more living a lie. HAPPY PRIDE” — before conversing with the initial commenters (all of who were deeply moved) of the Facebook post. Massive.
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.
