Deep Thought is back with a new album ‘Sun God feat. Bryson the Alien’

Collaborating with a series of incredible artists over the past few years including legendary rapper Mick Jenkins, MED, Rome Fortune, Chester Watson, Vash Noir and more, innovative producer Deep Thought continues to prove that he is an artist not to be missed. Combining a luscious blend of lo-fi hip-hop with an electronic-esque aesthetic, the Denver-based talent has an eye for underground talent, featuring an array of upcoming talent and well-established veterans in the scene whilst accumulating over 1 million streams across all streaming platforms.


Having already cemented himself into the scene with a wealth of broad and immersive gems this year, including ‘The Truth’ with Mick Jenkins and ‘Bon Voyage’ with Rome Fortune, Deep Thought is continuing his prolific streak as he returns with his enticing eight-track album, ‘Sun God’ alongside Bryson the Alien this May.

A stand-out track across the album, the title track ‘Sun God’ opens with eerie synths and Bryson the Alien’s trademark bars, which leads listeners down an atmospheric and almost melancholic path from the distorted vocal chops and cinematic percussion. Euphoric chords and alluring atmospherics can be heard across tracks like ‘Sunrise’ and ‘Duke Nukem’, whilst ‘Come Get It!’ and ‘Big Tuna In The City’ add to Deep Thought’s lo-fi hip-hop sound that he is known for.

On the flip side, ‘Chronic 4001’ is a dynamic and imaginative soundscape with a stripped-back and electric slice of underground hip-hop, leading into the haunting single ‘Force Field’ which feels like something from the other world, as alarming sound effects combine with sinister vocals for a complete mix-up within the album. Finishing the album with the thrilling ‘Bruce Banner’ with a combination of sultry synths and eerily minimalist beats, Deep Thought leaves listeners wanting more and second-guessing what’s next to come.

Featuring artist Bryson the Alien gave us this insight on working on the album, “Matt’s production as Deep Thought is truly unique and futuristic compared to conventional hip-hop beats. He brings my raw vocals and ideas to life in a cinematic way. The album concept and artwork draw inspiration from the title track and pay homage to ancient Mayan civilizations. I’ve always been interested in their understanding of the galaxy, planets, death, reincarnation, and spirituality. It’s a representation of that historical period.”

It’s not an easy task to add a series of different stylistic differences to an album, but Deep Thought’s unique producer skills highlight that he’s on the cusp of something very special with this offering. The album is filled with utter chemistry from the pairing and adds a vital addition to Deep Thought’s growing discography, always wanting fans and listeners alike to want more.
