Neospective Glitch is a short-lived burst of energy in one’s consciousness caused by a sudden change, creating a point of internal visual perception. The EP is a collaboration between two Sudanese artists who have never met in person, sharing a common home yet dealing with the internal conflicts there and in their personal lives, each describing mind-altering experiences through their individual musical expression.
The eight track release is a journey through Sharjah-based Toofless’ psyche, opening with 'Introspective Glitch' where he discusses consciousness and invites us to look through a window into his introverted mind. This is accompanied by the bone-crunching spaced-out production of Khartoum- based SufYan, whose influences range from the work of Alan Hawkshaw to 80’s R’n’B. The theme of connectivity is prevalent in the lead track 'L.O.V.E.', and 'Relevant' featuring vocalist Hamdan Al Abri (U.A.E.) where SufYan provides a more soulful sonic backdrop, before we are hit again with the harder tracks 'Black Hole (Africa)' featuring Idreesy (Sudan) and 'Shifts'.
Although around the scene for a while, this is Toofless’ first fully-fledged and most complete release to date. The EP borders on being experimental and unconventional while remaining true to the hip hop he grew up listening to, and even though they have never met their affinity for good music is obvious.
