Super Human by Ultimate Fantastic
Born in the shadows of a bliss-dance bombshell on a glorious Playa morning, Northern California future-music hip hop krewe Ultimate Fantastic descend on this planet in tortured, troubled times. Keeping one shell-toe in classic boom-bap, the other moonboot inside bombastic bass tombs, debut album Super Human gets the party started properly with an intelligent design. The fantastic foursome delivers their ambitious artistic statement devoid of pretense, offering their adventurous music as medicine, delivering art for art's sake, a canvas filled with color, raining positivity, and pushing the envelope in a variety of fashions.
Having shared the stage and studio with luminaries including Albino, Hamsa Lila, Vagabundos, and Pega5u5, Ultimate Fantastic is no stranger to the cutting edge. The lovechild of vintage vibe and a new frontier, "Overtime" comes out of the gates with mountains of mojo, topped with a trippy Timberlake'd hook. The lucid dream promise of an enlightened tomorrow, "My Dreams" is a smoothed-out, feel good, deep house cut, next level R&B levitating in the chill zone, with Deja Solis's sultry vocals weakening the knees. As psychedelic beats bump the bottom end bulbous, resident emcee/vocalists Pharroh and Wink offer a definitive juxtaposition between styles and steez, Solis the perfect foil for both rappers to detonate.
