Five years after releasing Return of the Astro-Goth, Yugen Blakrok descends from the vast cosmos and delivers to the world an impressive lesson in style, with her second album Anima Mysterium. Far from the stars but heavy with their radiant wisdom; it’s towards Earth, humanity and the obscurity at its core that the South African rapper directs her incantations.
Accompanied by Kanif the Jhatmaster’s beats, Yugen’s flow sows the frontiers of a world where the subconscious frees itself and confronts man with his most hidden secrets. Yugen’s poetry has something Ovidian, depicting her as an agent of Metamorphosis, a reincarnated goddess in terrestrial form calling humanity to itself.

“Why in the deepest darkness my soul beams like a lantern
Engineered in female form...silent carrier of the force
I'm a sandstorm in desert dunes, a shadow with a torch”
Land of Gray, Yugen Blakrok

The osmosis between Yugen’s words and Kanif’s instrumentals comes across from the first listen. On Return of the Astro-Goth, the astrological ideas covered by the rapper found a perfect canvas in the mix of wind instruments, dub and electronic echoes from the beatmaker. Here, Yugen lays hers flow over instrumentals of rock, jazz and even at times something that sounds close to witch-house. The project, released under French label I.O.T Records, extracts the essential oils from hip-hop as seen by the two artists, whose creative freedom and artistic integrity contrast with the current rigid codes of the genre. At their sides they have rallied to their musical odyssey artists from South Africa and the US, including hip-hop legend Kool Keith himself.

5th - it's a standout album for me so far this year for sure. i listened to her 2013 album return of the astrogoth and some of the stuff she did with jak and always thought she had potential, but this album is on a whole over level qualitywise. it's so much more polished. her lyrics are really out there at times she almost reminds me of GZA a bit, some really nice production on here too. not a bad track on the record. the way jak comes in on metallik crow might be my favorite moment on the whole record though


i didn't know historian himself posted on here before observe but i believe it. his music videos are crazy though, and i'm pretty sure that's all him. he's ridiculously talented - does paleo art, storyboards, sculptures, murals for museums, VFX, creature & costume design, animation, short stories, etc as well.

Yea tippi, I remember her first album and really liking it...then totally forgot about her till I was browsing hhb and seen the new album. I agree her lyrics are a bit out there, but I've always been a fan of esoteric subject matter in rap, granted, it's annoying if not done right but she killed it with this. I can see the gza comparison. Definitely an album that takes several listens to digest. The artworks dope too. To me it's a mix of nature and the digital era combined. Dont know how to explain it but that's the vibe I get

Best album this year so far.I listened to her first album in 2017 and I wished that she would drop a new album and it happened.
The album remind me of the debut Jedi Mind Tricks LP.

Just got through this...a very solid album. I liked the production, the lyrics, samples.

I'm going to check out her last album. That slipped by me somehow
