Do believe the Hype.
As if out of nowhere, one half of Hype Williams (along with Dean Blunt) Inga Copeland today dropped the Higher Powers mixtape. The tape is dated from 2012, but while ‘Faith’ and ‘BMW’ did indeed surface last year, the other tracks are at least new to us.
It’s brief at a mere twenty minutes, but Copeland has packed Higher Powers with the kind of fuzzy, off-world goodness that has made Hype Williams so crucial in the last few years. Her collaboration with Scratcha DVA ‘A World In Danger III’ is a highlight, bringing the tape to a close with a skeletal ragga riddim and Copeland’s disembodied lullaby vocals.
