The A.M. – AF The Naysayer x Luke St. John
AF THE NAYSAYER X LUKE ST. JOHN; the sound-scape supremacy that is AF THE NAYSAYER divined within the supernatural wordplay of LUKE ST. JOHN blends dreamlike sound-scapes with alchemical instrumentation. Imagine Jay Electronica and Prefuse 73 remixing the soundtrack for Chrono Trigger. Multi-platform experimentation on colorful complex chords,
detailed ambiguity reminiscent of scripture, and an overall upbeat event all explore the worlds of AF THE NAYSAYER and LUKE ST. JOHN.
Their first EP, Autodidact Vol. 1, [TBA] mixes melodic percussion with soulful FM synthesis; the upbeat, laid back glitch and 16-bit arcade sounds coalesce with filter-heavy samples and thoughtful folk-like lyrics producing music reminiscent of other rapper/producer collaborations such as Gang Starr, BLU & Exile, Panacea, and YSociety.
