A Deli Exclusive: Morsifire’s Contact

“Contact,” the latest from San Francisco-based alt hip hop artist Morsifire, is a painful song about loss and coping. Raised with a mother suffering from addiction and in a household full of trauma, the artist wrote “Contact” as an emotional reaction to the loss of his sister. He says, "This song is about the immediate aftermath of my sister’s death and everything that came with it. By the end of the song I’m actually addressing her, wherever she is. It’s a raw song, an open wound..."

The track features indie pop singer Emily Afton, who helps infuse and soften the song with her spellbinding voice. "Contact" reminds us of that Eminem track with Dido, and accomplishes a similar feat: a wounded rapper’s anger and pain softened by powerful female vocals. Stay tuned for Morsifire’s live shows in San Francisco and beyond.

Dying In Designer “Wounds”

Dying In Designer has released a video for the latest single, “Wounds”, from his new album, Nobody’s Happy, which drops this Friday, August 16th, via Hopeless Records.

Here is what Dying in Designer had to say about this track. "'Wounds' was the last song I made before turning the album in. I had a session with Erik Ron and we were just hanging out jamming songs off the album. After listening to my album, Erik said he wanted to do something a bit different from what I already had. We somehow got on the subject of R&B and how much we both love that genre. From that moment we knew we wanted to make an emo R&B song. Wounds is about my ex girlfriend calling me to tell me she's found someone new. I was just starting to get over her and hearing that really set me back. Like you'll hear in the song, some wounds will never heal."

Novatore "Say Goodnight"

Novatore has released a new and very personal single called “Say Goodnight”. This is the first single from the rapper’s forthcoming album called Louie II the follow-up to Louie which was released back in February.

Novatore will be touring the West Coast through out the month of September with Apathy & Celph Titled.

Ceschi digs deep in new record, Middle East performance set for 09.01

New Haven’s Ceschi Ramos challenges listeners to enter his world of inconvenient truths and dark social tales. In his brand new record Sans Soleil, Ceschi makes use of a full sonic arsenal: from alternative hip-hop verses that sting with precision to folk eulogies fit for gatherings by the porch light, it all delivers somber realities. Ceschi and his array of collaborators hold nothing back as they comment on today’s political tensions, state of the media, inner-city conditions, and how identity gets muddled in it all. Take a track like “Incesticide (feat. Open Mike Eagle, P.O.S, Onry Ozzborn, Factor Chandelier, Mo Niklz)” which showcases Ceschi and his collaborators alternating spitfire verses to the might of a percussive electronic beat, the back and forth recalling the glory of ‘80s hip-hop groups. “Christ on a Cross” by comparison is a heartfelt track that uses an acoustic guitar chord progression to tell an urban tale of religious ambiguity, the tragedy of faith exposed. The stories found in Sans Soleil hit hard, the way music should. Catch Ceschi Ramos at Middle East in Cambridge on September 1st. We are streaming “Yoni’s Electrocardiographs (feat. Yoni Wolf)” for you below. - Rene Cobar
