Loose and melodic with an undeniably eclectic vibe, “The Merchant of Flatbush" continues the genre-ambiguous approach by Terence Etc, whose recent single "In Contemplation of Clair's Scent" clocked in at over 10 minutes long. Check it out below.

V O R T E X is a sonic tool that I made so that I can play it for myself and balance my energy between masculine and feminine; creative and destructive; domination and submission; right and left; sun and moon; day and night: opposing energies generally,” Nance says in a statement. “The album intends to use sound, melody, song, incantation, etc. to rebalance the self and each other throughout the constant circular movement of life.”

Nance is the visionary director behind the Afrofuturist HBO series Random Acts of Flyness, which is due to return for a second season later this year. He's also a musician, having scored his 2012 film An Oversimplification of Her Beauty and, in 2012 released his debut EP Things I Never Had as Terence Etc.
