Christian Rich—Lady of the Night [feat. Y-O of U-N-I]

Submitted by on May 21, 2010 – 8:52 am14 Comments

Christian Rich collaborated with Y-O from the left coast duo U-N-I, to give us some quality music that’ll likely be in rotation in that iTunes library heavy until you get the rest of the tape. It has this reggae/ska/dub feel to it, and the hook is something you’ll be humming in your kitchen while you’re cooking or walking around the city whistling. After the drop, jam it, download it, and spread the word like wildfire.

Also, if you can see that beautiful imagery above, it means you’re looking at their mixtape artwork. The illustration is indicative of something monumental. Confused at all by what it’s depicting? Don’t worry! The twins broke down the meaning of their artwork this morning:

The artwork meaning is simple. It’s about the word “Decadence,” which in part means decay, but also an uprising. So the cover depicts a world where the people at the bottom are decaying and the people closer to the top are rising, hence a new start. As you see, the creatures at the bottom are crying and sad, while the ones above them are smiling and crying tears of joy. We tried to recreate a fictional world to set the tone for “The Decadence.

There you have it. Reminds me a bit of ‘Ye’s Graduation album art, as well as the illustration style from Fern Gully. The Decadence is hosted by Clinton Sparks and Mick Boogie, and will feature Pharrell Williams, Pusha T, Peter, Bjorn and John, DJ Benzi, U-N-I, and more. It drops May 31st, so mark your calendars!
