Fliptrix continues with his run of high-quality hip hop drops with the new single ‘Eden.’ Produced by the infamous Illinformed, ‘Eden’ is the first song Fliptrix penned on returning to music after a hiatus that saw him relocate to another country, in search of a brighter future.
With the extended break came a flurry of new insights, primed for the right moment in time. The result is quintessential Fliptrix: flawless penmanship made up of spiralling references rooted in the aforementioned quest for paradise and the various life changes that comprise a brand new way of being.
A legendary hip hop artist within the UK boom bap scene, the London-born lyricist plies his trade as a solo artist, as well as being one-quarter of acclaimed outfit The Four Owls and managing director of the hugely influential High Focus Records. A regular on hip hop podcasts you may have heard him on Romesh Ranganathan‘s ‘Hip Hop Saved My Life.’
Creating music has always been a deeply personal experience for Fliptrix, and ‘Eden’ is one of the best examples in his catalogue. The track is a journey of self-discovery, pairing key social commentary with an overriding message that turns negatives into positives, and ultimately sees Fliptrix thrive – instead of merely survive.
It is the third single lifted from Fliptrix’s impending ninth solo album ‘Mantra No. 9,’ following on from ‘Primordial Soup,’ a collaboration with long-time collaborator King Kashmere, and title track ‘Mantra No. 9.’ The release of ‘Eden’ further heightens the anticipation for the release of Fliptrix’s long-awaited new album.
