Dominic Lord | ‘Fashion Show’ EP.
Dominic Lord is without a doubt my favourite rapper at the moment. His video for “Pierce” looks like it should be an ad campaign for a really amazing fashion label, and manages to make him come across as a very contemporary gangster – if that’s even a thing? Oh wait, it is, because he just made it one. His debut EP Fashion Show is pretty incredible and samples (albeit quite subtly) Lana Del Rey’s “Blue Jeans” and Kavinsky’s “Nightcall” (in “Sin City”), as well as Grimes (in the remix for “Pierce”). Other highlights from the album include “Message Failure”, “Colour Me Red”, and “Mozart, Go”. To put it simply, this is the Kid Cudi that Kid Cudi wishes he was.
