Mixtape: Fijimacintosh – Satellite Crash
Currently Gearing Up for a Tour with Smooky Margielaa, the 16-Year-Old Rapper Drops a 10-Track Project and a Trippy New Video for a Buzzing Single
Critical Praise for Fijimacintosh:
“NoirIllusions and Fijimacintosh’s “Glock Box” has a playful immediacy uncommon to such low-profile artists, but its cheeriness has an addictiveness that’s tough to deny. The track does a neat trick of giving a song about packing weapons, fucking all night, and foreign cars—rap toolkit shit—an effervescent tone. It’s executed economically, and with a shamelessness that suggests this won’t be the duo’s first visit to these pages.” – Complex
The Mixtape + Video:
Carefully crafting bright and colorful ear candy, Ohio native Fijimacintosh has the melodic instincts to hit the big time. Arriving with a fully-formed artistic effort, Fiji shares Satellite Crash, his debut project. Spinning saccharine melodies over shimmering and atmospheric production, Fiji showcases a songwriting ability that rivals his cousin Trippie Redd. Floating over beats from Go Grizzly, Cassius Jay, Charlie Handsome, Deko, Pooh, and others, Fiji captivates over the length of the tape’s ten tracks, including highlight “Nocturnal Exclipse,” a swirling and wavy new single, premiered earlier by ELEVATOR. The culmination of momentum created by singles “Millennium,” featuring Kid Trunks, which has over 600k plays on SoundCloud in the three months since its release, Satellite Crash is a promising portrait of a blossoming artist, as Fiji mutates his style through each infectious track. Featuring appearances from Robb Bank$, A1 Billionaire, SwagHollywood, and Cashonly, Satellite Crash arrives via Cybersound 777 / EMPIRE.
Explains Fijimacintosh, “This tape is the evolution of a melodic butterfly. It’s me pushing the edge of culture and finding myself and going thru real life experiences converting it into sonic movie to introduce myself to the world.”
Accompanying the album, Fijimacintosh shares “Wintertime Nights,” the perfect visual complement for his musical style, premiered today by Complex. Dancing in a pixellated and multicolored vision, complete with video game visuals, giant mushrooms, and iconography from Microsoft XP, Fiji blurs fantasy and reality in the video, as he alternates between the drab real world and the cornucopia of colors in cyberspace. “Wintertime Night$” is a tuneful and wavy highlight from Satellite Crash, demonstrating why Fiji earned a co-sign from fellow teen sensation Smooky Margielaa, who tapped Fijimacintosh to open on his upcoming 16-date Margielaa Madness tour, embarking on March 21st and spanning from Seattle to Boston.
