Silas Futura ‘Precious’
This week’s Local Eyes video is from Auckland based musician Silas Futura, formally known as Bobandii. Silas hits the pavement running, sharing his first single titled Precious, off upcoming EP Pluto due out in March. The easy carefree vibe of Precious encapsulates the happy confidence of this prolific young artist finding his stride as he embarks on a new musical vision in 2021.
Produced by SmokeyGotBeatz of SWIDT (Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock collaborator),
Precious blends bouncing hip-hop beats with Silas’ fast-paced rapping across charmingly melodic verses. The collab naturally clicked into a place of perfection after a two year incubation period, before it was recorded during lockdown. “Smoke has always been so generous with his time and music. I’m mad grateful for his work and his nature toward everything, it’s very refreshing to be around. It’s so cool to finally release something we’ve worked on together after such a long time.”
