N.A.S.A ft. Kanye West, Santogold & Lykke Li - Gifted

Posted 7 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
Squeak E. Clean & DJ Zegon
Album:
The Spirit of the Apollo

New to the Booth, international musical collective N.A.S.A. have undertaken a manned mission into the eardrums of hip-hopsters everywhere.  New record Gifted off the group’s forthcoming debut LP, The Spirit of the Apollo (scheduled for release February 17th), makes it clear that N.A.S.A.‘s m.o. is to appeal to both rap fans and the hipster crowd by featuring the trendiest artists on both sides of the fence, in this case bringing Kanye West, Santogold, and Swedish indie artist Lykke Li together over a bass-bumping beat by founding members Squeak E. Clean and DJ Zegon.  Though you can’t argue with the musical muscle brought to bear on this very danceable record, Gifted might have benefited from a little, well, space – clocking in at under three minutes, it feels a bit tightly packed.  At the end of the day, it remains to be seen whether N.A.S.A.‘s eclecticism will blossom into something greater than the sum of its parts.
