The Underachievers - Indigoism (2xLP)
“A friend sent over one of their videos. The first song I heard – ‘Gold Soul Theory’ – was perfect. I heard it and I didn’t even have to hear a second song. I couldn’t figure out why these kids weren’t killing it right now. It blew me away how professional everything was, but also how forward thinking and spiritually minded these young kids were. It just made complete sense. Within the first 20 seconds I was pretty sure I was going to try to sign them. I never get that feeling.” – Flying Lotus
“Born in Brooklyn, raised in Flatbush,” Ak and Issa Dash – aka The Underachievers – have arrived. From the moment their first music video, ‘So Devilish,’ surfaced in May 2012, the duo set themselves comfortably in their own lane. The young rappers have since evolved from creating a DIY movement in Brooklyn to shutting down stages on tour with Kendrick Lamar and taking on the world, one hypnotic video at a time (clocking over 2.5 million Youtube views). With a raw energy that feels almost reminiscent of 90s hip hop, they shook the game up with a refreshing new voice, bringing plenty of psychedelia and heightened lyricism into the mix.
As members of the Beast Coast movement (which includes Joey Bada$$ and his Pro Era crew), The Underachievers are part of the new wave of rappers that have been coming out of New York. But they’re also repping the West: last summer the duo signed to Flying Lotus’ label in LA, Brainfeeder.
‘Indigoism’ marks the first Brainfeeder/Underachievers collaboration. Dropping February 1st, the 17-track mixtape features the duo’s underground hits (including ‘Gold Soul Theory,’ ‘Herb Shuttles’ and ‘Leopard Shepherd’), in addition to brand new tracks produced by the likes of Mr Bristol, Rich Flyer, The Entreproducers, Bruce Lee Kixxs, Juice and Lou Chapo from Tribe Gang, and Dreamrite. Listening to their sage lyrics, it’s hard to believe they’re only 21 (Ak) and 22 (Issa Dash) years old. And on the strength of ‘Indigoism,’ it’s near impossible to believe that up until 9 months ago, Ak and Dash had no set intention to be in the rap game at all. As they say themselves: “Indigos on the rise.”
