Recorded two years ago, Mike Melinoe’s fiery video for “Phase Face Moonlight” has finally been released and premiered on Noisey. The energetic rapper from Detroit, who now stays in Austin, is surrounded by flame throwers outside of a warehouse somewhere in the city limits. The fiery video includes Melinoe ganged up, then transporting to some spaceship somewhere, orbiting around the planets. It’s a wild concept, but so is Mike’s whole approach to art.
A lot of what Mike does can’t be explained, or sometimes even understood until the 3rd or 4th listen. Something he is entirely comfortable with, and if the listener can keep up they can really get behind what Mike is doing. He’s been building his fan base consistently over the last year or so, I expect big things from the “demigod”.
