[ARTISTIC MANIFESTO] PENPALS takes off on a “Trip to Peru”

New York’s PENPALS hits me with their latest track, “Trip to Peru.” The three man collective (consisting of emcee’s Cynic the Apache and Rapswell, with Squires handling production) puts a clever spin on the classic game show, Wheel of Fortune.

To date, they’ve made waves in the NYC underground and elsewhere with several ill projects, like their 2015 self-titled debut, which was followed-up the following year with, Made for the Underground, produced entirely by Jazz Spastiks (a/ka/ The Slipmat Brothers). With “Trip to Peru,” the group sounds more focused than ever over Viola’s jazzy, piano-heavy instrumental.
