MP3: Tynethys – “Hiyah” 

Tynethys’ Releases “Hiyah” From Forthcoming Album, Thyluxe, Premiered by FACT Mag


 Critical Praise for Tynethys:

“…a new wave of pillowy-soft West Coast tunes.” – Pitchfork

“…proves that math is for losers and rap is awesome.” –Vice’s NOISEY

“…an airy, narcotic project that floats along and passes in a blur.” –The FADER 

“Tynethys, aka Nicky Samuel, carries on the mantle of where that ‘cloud rap’ hype is headed, mixing analogue tricks seen and heard on old televisions and VCRs that brings out the ghosts from yesterday’s machines for the new synth terrains of today’s sonic atmospheres and introspective verses” – Impose Mag

The Song:

Notorious for a considerable amount of cannabis consumption, Tynethys brings a intergalactic, innovative sound to his newest track, “Hiyah,” premiered by FACT Mag. Having previously released a collaborative project with the Main Attrakionz, this is the second single from the Sacramento artist’s anticipated solo album, Thyluxe. On the trippy new electro-hip-hop track, he explores different artistic approaches, like spacey synths and futuristic loops. Guided by a rumbling series of bass hits, he takes the listener on a bugged-out journey, which FACT Mag further describes as “a noisy, post-Yeezus approach to Tynethys’ cloud rap sound that grounds his kung fu and TV references in something industrial and glitched-out.”

This single follows the release of the album’s first single, “Hump Day,” which was debuted by ACCLAIM Mag, and a loose Valentine’s Day release, “Made For Me,” which was introduced by Okayplayer. Tynethys’ Thyluxe is slated for an April release.

Tynethys Background:

To hear him tell it, Sacramento’s Tynethys’ (pronounced “Teen-theez”) musical style is like “selling crack in a Sub-Zero outfit.” For the MC/producer, Mortal Kombat is just one of his inspirations, along with rap heroes Mac Dre, Kid Cudi, and T-Nutty. Producing and writing his songs in the hours between midnight and sunrise, Tynethys is a jovial, pensive creator with a stoner’s laugh and street vernacular. Tyne’s style is a fuzzy free-form that speaks not only to his worldview from his bedroom, but many like him. With the forthcoming Thyluxe, a follow-up to last year’s Lost Angeles album, Tynethys believes he’s hitting his best stride. “I feel like it is the truest representation of me. I did it without trying too hard.” Besides his own work, Tynethys appeals to many collaborators. On October 22, he released a project with Oakland duo Main Attrakionz. “I really fucked with these dudes. They came to Sacramento, and I showed up at their hotel room,” recalls Tyne, who arrived with a portable studio. Having opened for Kendrick Lamar, Raekwon and Evidence, it’s only a matter of time until Tynethys transports his sound around the globe.
