After debuting last month with "In My Shoes," Fudge—the newly-formed duo of veteran beat-maker experimentalist Prefuse73 and up-and-coming Boston MC, Michael Christmas—shared a new track today, "Popstar Shit."
At just over two and a half minutes long, "Popstar Shit" is criminally short, but it's an enjoyable, adrenaline-fueled drift across the cosmos nonetheless; its sweeping galactic bleeps and vast synths drive Christmas' confident, smirking delivery. "Christmas is a genius and people just have to accept it," Prefuse73 told Mass Appeal in a recent interview. Listen to the track below.
Both "In My Shoes" and "Popstar Shit" will appear on Fudge's upcoming debut album, Lady Parts, which is scheduled for release on September 9 via LEX Records. According to the label website, the duo came together last year to record at Nick Hook's Green Point studio, where Christmas wrote lyrics to the various beats Prefuse73 brought on his hard drive. One of the songs on Lady Parts features D.R.A.M., whose inclusion came about when he dropped by a recording session and ended up recording himself.
