‘Computers Outside’ is the new concept-EP from UK based rap-poet Otis Mensah, accompanied by the mellow, boombap instrumental sound of U.S Baltimore based hip-hop producer Ray Sosa. This 5 track overseas collaboration explores themes of an excessive internet and digital age, with introspection and energy in delivery.
“In this internet age that we all exist in, I feel it has become easy to fall victim to a vicious cycle of monotony, eventually leading to a life of total mediocrity, if the worst case scenario prevails. This virtual matrix has become a primary and staple necessity; a habitual right to be plugged in to, since all signs of the internet as a recreational and educational entity owning luxury-status has been drained out and flushed away. The generation that succeeds us will only know of a time when the internet and computing as its driving force was not in full effect second hand, vaguely through memorabilia.” Otis Mensah, Computers Outside.
