Listen to Erthling’s new single “Spirits In the Flesh”, from the EP ‘Magical Realizm’ available Thursday November 9th.
‘Magical Realizm’ is the first release of psychedelic hip-hop veteran David Redwine under his new Erthling alias.
By no means Erthling’s first attempt at a bonafide hip hop release—the rapper/producer formerly known as Slanguage has been making waves in the alternative hip hop world for almost a decade. From his days with Tuscaloosa, Ala.’s Intelligent Quotes, to his continuing work with rapper Fathom as half of the group Pen Pals, every beat tape and EP shows a clear artistic progression.
Redwine is a fixture in the Birmingham hip hop scene, with rappers nationwide clamoring for his beats, and shows throughout the state hoping that his credibility canonizes their stage. Promoters keep him at the top of their call lists whenever they book a show, and he’s delivered—sharing bills with artists as diverse as Open Mike Eagle, Milo, and David Liebe Hart.
This release, ‘Magical Realizm’, signifies a new commitment to content as Erthling readies upcoming releases with Richard Daniel of Birmingham’s RDFND crew, and the southern sage OZU as the duo 729. In the meantime, he’s gearing up for a tour with psyche-synth duo Tohu Va in the coming months.
