Manchester's favourite young troubadour, Gideon Conn is set to release Crystallised, the second single taken from his album, Hip Hop Original, on May 13th.
The song is a well curated collection of motivational affirmations set against a backdrop of hypnotic beats. Delivered with Gideon's charismatic and remarkable story-telling techniques, and featuring the soothing vocals of former Boxette, Yvette Riby-Williams, the track is simultaneously spacey, uplifting and a testament to his quirky philosophy of life.
Crystallised could be the portrait of an ordinary day, but supported by a maze-like video - a set of visuals that turn into a trip down the rabbit hole - it becomes an out-of-this-world experience. And to back this up, the single comes equipped with a surreal remix from the space-funk collective, Paper Tiger.
To add an extra twist to the release, Gideon teamed up with two fellow artists and created an innovative piece of mixed arts: an interactive video, which is the perfect blend between Gideon's music, Dex Hannon's aesthetic feast of geometry, colour and texture, and Rich Williams' digital, gaming technology and creative skills.
