Elucid
Elucid
Born in Queens and raised in Long Island, longtime Brooklyn resident ELUCID is New York's best-kept secret. He's worked with some of indie hip-hop's most celebrated artists: Open Mike Eagle, Tanya Morgan, J*Davey, Beans from Antipop, milo, billy woods, Busdriver, Small Professor and Rob Sonic, amongst others. He's put out a few mixtapes and a couple collaborative projects—as part of Cult Favorite with A.M. Breakups, and Armand Hammer with billy woods—but never a solo album. Until now.

Rafael Vigilantics has put in the hard work and the hard times and I'll be damned if it doesn't show him come thru the other side to light up for us. His lyrics sound more like a confession then a hip-hop song. His music sounds more like an ominous war-drum than a rap track. His cadence more like a motorcycle ride thru the desert than a steady flow. His tone is fierce yet pleading. Think Iggy Pop forces Roy Orbison to rap at gunpoint while Bukowski watches. If you like P.O.S and Aesop Rock chances are you'll like Rafael Vigilantics, if you don't like hip-hop at all chances are it wont change how you feel about him. He doesn't sound like much of anything we've ever heard before, self described as "the noise before the sound" and "SEARCH-AND-DESTROY-HIP-HOP."
Listen to his title track "Unforgiven" from "The Orgasm of a Ghost" for a good taste of murder and the bad life sung to a drunken blues swagger. Listen to the punk-rooted anthem "Still Fighting" from his first record "Bury Me Standing" to hear how he spent his years between the railroad tracks and the wrecking ball. Listen to "The Darkness" from his newest release "The Spade Tapes" and you will find yourself in a circus full of love, drugs and kidnappings in Mexico. Whatever you do just make sure you really listen. There's a lot of story here and its a heartfelt worthwhile ride.
His soon to be released record "The Spade Tapes" has us anticipating what happens next. He started recording it in Austin, fled to Portland, and is now posting bail in LA, a trifecta sure not to fail. Featuring artists such as Onry Ozzborn, Luck-One and Mic Crenshaw. Lets see what direction this all goes, Im guessing true north.
