SΔMMUS is a rapper, who on the surface, sounds quite mainstream, you could easily mistake her for a muggle rapper.
But come on, look at the her name, and then listen to her music, yeah she is one of us!
But lets not undersell her, she has mainstream connections as well, her brother is part of Gym Class Heroes, and she cites influences as diverse as Weezer and Kayne West
And as for herself, wow, what a woman, she has a PhD in Science and Technology from Cornell, I mean that’s impressive.
What I love about her music though, is the way she blends nerd topics, with African beats, and stuff that’s quite ordinary. I absolutely love that she makes music which celebrates blackness and her interests without pigeonholing herself whatsoever!
If you know me, then you know I am a massive massive Trekkie, I mean my earliest memory is watching Space Seed on a black and white TV in my parents sitting room in a block of flats while playing with my A-Team van as Paul cried because he wanted the van off me!
Anyway, I cannot even say how much I absolutely love Star Trek, and I don’t care which series it is, even the rubbish episodes have something for them.
So of course I love any kind of Star Trek music, and Warp 11 are some of my favourites.
Yet there are still people who never watch Star Trek and I find that super weird!
The Doubleclicks have their second entry of the year, with the song Kilogram from their Love Problems album.
Its a cool little ditty about the replacement of the International Prototype of the Kilogram with a mathematically formula the fixed numerical value of the Planck constant h to be 6.62607015×10−34 when expressed in the unit J⋅s, which is equal to kg⋅m2⋅s−1, where the metre and the second are defined in terms of c and ΔνCs .
