Mic Pompei delivers the mother of all introductions with Yung Wurl, the ﬁrst single and video to come off his debut LP, Shift. Inspired by a profound sense of hope and belief in the human race’s potential to better itself, Pompei lays down raw lyrics about an infantile civilisation while raising a toast to our planet because, he states, it isn’t too late to change.
Produced by Melbourne’s Dazed ‘Yung Wurl’ is an orchestral roller coaster underpinned by a driving kick & dramatic percussion. The sample’s epic scale demands your undivided attention through brooding peaks and troughs. The track’s ﬁnal crescendo both lyrically and sonically open up the potentials for what lies in the not so distant future – the Shift LP.
As an introduction to what is set to be the hip hop album of 2014, Yung Wurl is a musical invitation to embark on an alternative train of thought. This single is taken from new album Shift, set for release on Overstand in June.
