Montreal rapper Skiifall stormed 2021 with a string of great releases, including the three-track EP WOIIYOIE TAPES Vol. 1 and “Ting Tun Up. Pt. II,” a song with Knucks that was our second favorite of the year. He’s kept things similarly steady in 2022, releasing the solo single “Bloodclarrt Business,” touring with BADBADNOTGOOD, and being featured on “What If“ by Lil Silva. On Friday, he broke the hiatus once more with a new single called “Fam Without Blood.”
Tracks like these are why we’re content to let Skiifall take his time. The beat, co-produced by WondaGurl, Rodaidh McDonald, London Cyr, and frequent Skiifall collaborator Yama // Soto, has the kind of “30,000-feet-at-sunrise” dreaminess that Skiifall thrives on in part due to the contrast his dancehall-inflected street raps provide.
