Having achieved over 100,000 streams on Spotify in under two weeks with his first single, Apocraphe returns back to the future with his second release in the lead up to the album - Mighty Like Guybrush.
Introducing prodigious newcomer Dakota on the beat, the track is inspired by the cult point and click adventure games, with the title a nod to the lead character of the classic Monkey Island series, Guybrush Threepwood (Mighty Pirate). The super modern trap sound intermingled with the trippy electronic noises creates a unique soundscape that melds together analog and digital technology, evoking the glitchy feel of classic old-school computer gaming. Meanwhile Apoc flexes his trademark lyrical dexterity, packing fun filled references and hat tips to all the greats of the genre whilst simultaneously weaving a flow with Dakota's musical ingenuity. .The juxtaposition between the cult reference material and the hyper-modern trap sound creates a fascinating sonic landscape, and something that will make people vibe along, whether they understand the original reference material or not. Scratches laid down by the legendary Jabba Tha Kut finish off the track to perfection.
